What could have been a brilliant & entertaining documentary morphed into a self-indulgent display of Ms Goldwyn's narcissism. It was an exercise in futility to watch her emulate the graceful movements of the queens of burlesque. These women practiced the art of illusion,using their bodies to express fluid motion while enticing their audience. It would appear that "Zorita" had Ms Goldwyn all figured out as an imposter; on a REAL stage, she would have been booed off by the crowd! HBO should pay closer attention to the quality of their documentaries. Much of the material, editing, and commentary seems to come from Filmaking 101. Quite frankly, I don't CARE that Ms Goldwyn can tell the difference between a jete or a plie,it simply wasn't relevant.
