AP’s television writer Frazier Moore calls the made-for-TV Jodi Arias movie “a pretty good film,” even if it is deceptively named. “Jodi Arias: Dirty Little Secret,” to air Saturday on Lifetime, has no secrets, he says. And how could it, the sordid story of the Arizona murderer having been run through the endless wringer of CNN/HLN as infotainment fodder for months (or is it years?).
Portraying what led up to the crime, it's tucked handily between the May verdict for the murder trial and the July retrial in the life-or-death-penalty phase.
As for the Lifetime publicity photo of actress Tania Raymonde as Arias, she’s got the gaze down. It remains to be seen how good she is with a knife.
