The film is important in the way that it shows celebrities, not as superhumans or subhumans, but people who eat, shit and breath just like the rest of us. It's true, Madonna is not what you'd call a typical person and she is at times very shallow, but this film at least shows that she is a hardworking human being, compared to the way much of the press portrays her (which appears to be a vision of a sex gargoyle from the outer limits). Some touching moments involve a visit to Madonna's mother's grave, and when an old friend goes backstage to ask Madonna if she'd be the Godmother of her child. This is an entertaining and irresistible documentary, in the mold of such "rockumentaries" as Gimme Shelter, Woodstock and Stop Making Sense.
