Nonsense plot, DAMN good movie-going experience.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Full disclosure, I didn't finish watching. My wife thought I would enjoy it but... she was mistaken. What read for her as revolutionary (a woman in her period, a tampon) read to me as manipulation by a man to get this story told. Sangre ex machina? She told me there was a rape scene we hadn't gotten to yet and I was ready to call it quits. Obviously the payoff of characterization may do better for some but it was not a win for me, though I can objectively acknowledge some good things that were happening.
