Indie stalwart Henry Jaglom churns out Queen of the Lot
Queen of the Lot is a sequel to 2006's Hollywood Dreams, in which Frederick's hysterical eagerness to please was somewhat apt for the role of a delusionally ambitious, alarmingly pushy Hollywood newbie. Now we're supposed to believe that toxic figure has "made it." This is the actress' third starring vehicle for Jaglom; a fourth is imminent. This creative partnership demonstrates a judgment-impaired loyalty that is perhaps one part chivalry to nine parts WTF.
QUEEN OF THE LOT opens Fri/10 in Bay Area theaters.
