should've been much better
27 March 2004 | by See all my reviews

I can't believe that this is a (TV) movie made by Peter Bogdanovich whom I admire for his delicious "Cat's Meow", "The Last Picture Show", "Paper Moon" and not to forget the medicore but joyable "The Thing Called Love". Natalie Wood's life and stories - I believe has to be much better than it. Especially, in Bogdanovich's hand, and the good choice actress : Justine Waddell, who's surprisingly playing Natalie so well, and also very very much look alike. To be honest, Waddell is the only thing that's good in this TV movie. (And I really hope she can find another good role for her talent and beauty).

while the rest of the cast are not so good, (maybe Alice Kridge's not that bad for her role of the crazy ambitious mother from hell, though) and they made this worse. I can't even really find the "Joan Collins" and much different Christopher Walken (not after the famous scene came out) , the one who plays James Dean also looked so different and can't capture Dean's spirit.

the plot also should've been better than it. Anyway, it's still pretty enjoyable to watch, but I still hope if only it's better than this.
