Time Out New York

By Joshua Rothkopf
Watts’s work is extraordinary, sometimes keying off the same illicit register as "Mulholland Drive"; she risks being goofy, awkward and...

Village Voice

By Amy Nicholson
Diana is a Lifetime movie in sensible pumps, at once too silly to be taken seriously, yet so self-serious it rarely allows us to giggle.

By Richard Roeper
It’s a fractured fairy tale, penned in clunky strokes.

Diana film inaccurate, but entertaining...

By Coryraisa
