From 'Grindhouse' to 'Battlefield Earth,' here are some memorably brutal film shoots
'Swept Away' (2002)
Guy Ritchie learned two very important lessons on this film: first, don't marry Madonna, and second, don't put her in your film if you do. The original 'Swept Away' was very much a product of its time, and what must have felt shocking and fresh in the '70s ended up feeling like a joke in the '90s. Even more awkwardly, the film feels like an excuse for Madonna to roll around on a beach with low-rent Antonio Banderas-alike Adriano Giannini, which can't have been easy or pleasant for anyone on the set. The material is totally wrong for Ritchie's sensibilities, too, and it seems important that if you're going to make someone's dream project as a filmmaker, it should be your dream, not your wife's.
