Dangerous Game (also known as Snake Eyes) is a 1993 film directed by Abel Ferrara starring Madonna, Harvey Keitel and James Russo.
The film opened in US theaters on November 19, 1993 and was trashed by critics. It found a few fans, however: Slant magazine's Ed Gonzalez called the film Madonna's only full-length masterpiece (aside from her album Erotica, which was released the year before).
Madonna herself was apparently not happy with the film. She was quoted as saying: "Even though it's a shit movie and I hate it, I am good in it." She also mentioned how the actual script was much better and her part more strongly written, but Ferrara changed a lot of it in the editing room. When asked about this, Ferrara said
This was the first production by Madonna's Maverick Picture Company, a division of the newly formed entertainment company Maverick.
