Biographies
19 May 2005 | by (BUENOS AIRES, ARGENTINA) – See all my reviews

Even when biographies have always been a general disaster, this one made for TV seems to capture the right decade -the 20's-. What's more: Jason Miller as F. Scott Fitzgerald captures the essence of this peculiar author. In reference to Tuesday Weld, an actress not always understood, her loony portrait of the unfortunate Zelda Sayre is really frightening. You have to watch her dancing alone while you listen "Poor Butterfly" on the soundtrack. Much has been written about Ms Sayre and she herself wrote a beautiful novel -SAVE ME THE WALTZ-. But oddly enough, no actress could match her madness as Tuesday Weld did in that made-for-TV movie. Pity this segment of two tortured lives, very well directed, didn't reach a wider audience. No matter what, it's impossible to forget Ms Weld in front of the mirrors because she becomes Zelda Sayre, lost in her own world. abel posadas
