As much as we complain when actors and actresses record albums despite any noticeable talent, the same goes for some pop stars. Madonna isn’t a particularly talented actress, but — if her directorial debut, Filth and Wisdom is any indication — her directing skills are on par with Lindsay Lohan’s singing career. And, of course, she tries the oldest trick in the indie book: If you lack substance and talent, just use a European cast and setting; it’ll look smart, even if it isn’t. It’s a lot like burying your singing voice in layers and layers of synth. It helps, too, to make your movie dirty, giving it a faux-provocative feel.

That Madonna — she somehow managed to suck out half of Guy Ritchie’s talent without absorbing an ounce of it. Here’s the trailer:
