The Scarlet Woman
1 June 2019 | by 3Lina3See all my reviews

I don't understand what I've just watched. The script wasn't good and the story wasn't captivating. It was quite strange and poor. In the end, it was about neither demonds nor rockets.

I can only interpret it as a story about a man being trapped in myths about women as muses, tools, divine creatures of heaven and hell etc and never being able to realize that they're just human beings like him. I wish he could just read Simone de Beauvoir's ''The Second Sex'' before it was too late. That could save him his life according to this episode.

And yet again the cast looks nothing like the people they're portraying.
