Perkins anchors these traumas with simultaneous restraint and hysteria, and Cimber matches the character’s conflicted psychology not through expressionistic gestures, but by altering the film’s sensorial register, so that genre thrills start to bleed into larger, more abstract questions regarding mental health and bodily autonomy.
