Critic Reviews for Proteus: A Nineteenth Century Vision
Grounded by the stark physicality of the location and the emotional charge generated by those prison-bound passions (Jean Genet would have approved).
Is it a movie or the best-designed episode of Nova ever?
Involving and affecting even if it is not completely coherent or fully realized.
Carries an air of forced-wit experimentation that never quite gets its anachronisms in order.
Clearly attempting to make the story relevant for contemporary times, they use a variety of stylistic devices that serves to have the opposite effect, distancing us from a story that might have been far more compelling if rendered in a direct fashion.
