The Seattle Weekly once panned Madonna’s classic rockumentary Truth or Dare—and on its 20th anniversary! Rude!—while claiming the only interesting part of the film was “just how not scandalous” it was in our current age of pop princesses showing their vaginas on the internet. I agree that Truth or Dare, like anything approaching 30, has become less rowdy with age, but judging the film on its shock value (it was very shocking then, but it is not very shocking now) ignores the many ways Truth or Dare continues to influence global—and gay—culture. The film is stylish, bratty, and braver than it admits.
