The Big Screen
Which film did Angeline Malik see most recently?
“I saw W.E. directed by Madonna. I picked it up not for her but for the fact that a king gave up his throne for the woman he loved; great concept but lacking in imagination. Madonna may not be a director, but I still feel she’s a great visionary. Maybe she should just stick to five minute videos. Recommended as in not what to watch.”
