Queen of the Lot Reviews

September 20, 2020
Jaglom infuses his characters with tremendous authenticity.

By the end of the film, I just felt sorry for Frederick and wondered if another director might be able to find a way to showcase her better.

Mocking Tinseltown is a pretty exhausted subject, and even Jaglom, a genuine insider, has a hard time making it fresh.

Very little in it suggests that Jaglom has changed. But I liked it. He might have been a visionary after all.

Josef von Sternberg had Marlene Dietrich. George Cukor had Katharine Hepburn. Henry Jaglom has, uh, Tanna Frederick.
December 3, 2010
Juggling love story, jewel heist, suicide and a hilarious 12-step meeting, Mr. Jaglom displays his usual loosey-goosey style and insider wit.

A sloppy vanity project ... rambling and toothless...
December 1, 2010
Jaglom can craft a scene and stage organic conversations, but if his saps and suckers never wander beyond a hermetic view of the real world, then so what?
November 30, 2010
A provocative and funny satire that's somewhat uneven, awkward and contrived. Tanna Frederick once again proves to be a sexy, charismatic and immensely talented actress.

Queen of the Lot is sort of sweet in its earnestness, sort of frustratingly delusional, and ultimately unsubstantial -- but there are moments of meta-provocation that almost justify the lopsided enterprise.
November 28, 2010
Co-opting claims of having created an insufferable lead character, Jaglom includes a meta-moment in which Maggie uncovers a quote from real-life Boston Globe critic Ty Burr.
November 22, 2010
This meandering, talky film-industry satire never manages to rouse itself from a near-comatose level of self-satisfaction.
November 22, 2010
Henry Jaglom again tries to mix comedy with melodrama with decidedly mixed results.

This wonderful character-driven film about a young woman who, with every fiber of her being, wants to be famous is funny, touching and oh-so romantic.
