  • Matt Burgess's rating of the film The Lonely Lady

    Thank god for Pia Zadora. She is shat on regularly by the press but always gives it her all and looks great doing it. This is her finest moment. Underneath the film's made-for-tv aesthetics, shitty soundtrack and obvious campy delights, believe me it really IS an accurate portrayal of the industry - a soul-sucking cesspool of assholes, sleazebags, impotent intellectuals and predatory lesbians lurking in hot tubs!
