My overall impression

Erica and Bathory’s relationship could have been brought to life in a more streamlined fashion to greater effect, but Flor was ultimately able to render two distinct identities, both beautifully energized and uniquely expressed once fully established. For the first five minutes or so the narrative seems to be finding its legs, a bit like a baby horse. Once it does though, it takes off running beautifully: a fascinating combination of historical fiction and frank introspection. Erica Flor and her creative team have worked to bring to life an exploration of the psyche by merging the past and the present through the use of impressive visuals and moments of truly visceral intensity.
“well behaved women seldom make history”
Keep on misbehaving!
