TORONTO (Reuters) - Madonna on Monday said she said she doesnt mind any criticism of her filmmaking abilities, so long as it is directed at her movie and not at herself. The pop star told reporters at the Toronto International Film Festival, where she is promoting her second film W.E., she had to earn her reputation as a musician and she expected to do the same as a film director. I had the same kind of pressure when I began my music career, Madonna told reporters. I was nervous, and I didnt know what to expect, and people didnt know what to expect. The film, which premiered at the Venice film festival and is screening at Toronto, has been characterised by critics as visually stunning, but lacking in focus and burdened by weak performances. I can tell when people are reviewing my film and when theyre reviewing me personally, Madonna said when asked whether she cared about what critics thought.
