    Review: 'Diana' Biopic Starring Naomi Watts Not Worthy Of A Crown

    From the use of Jacques Brel's "Ne Me Quitte Pas" (twice) to choice morsels of quotes such as, "Wherever you are, death will find you, even if you hide yourselves in firmly constructed towers" (from the Koran), the specter of death haunts "Diana."
