Amateurish bore
"Black Tulip" is a bore. It's an amateurish first film directed and starring an apparently talentless and inexperienced Beverly Hills socialite who decided to cast herself in a lead role. Reviewers have called the film "simplistic" "heavy-handed" and "obvious." Variety wrote, ""Tulip" has the conviction as well as the artlessness of a saber-rattling speech at a political fundraising dinner." The Hollywood Reporter wrote, "Cole is similarly green as a director, sometimes clumsy with camera placement, but casting herself in a lead role was especially problematic. She's the weakest actor here, laughing her way through scenes in which laughter makes little sense."
