Married at 16 years – with 18 years of violence that followed – Wendy left terrified. It took courage to face her husband, the only way he knew possible.
Originally a minute to nine, this documentary, finally coming to HBO with a bit more in your face the title – and, in a raw, reserve has come to characterize the pay channel, offers a very tight shot.
A harrowing portrait of domestic violence, the project relies heavily on video shot by the assailant dead, and his wife, Wendy Maldonado, spends his last days of freedom before going to jail for his murder.
The net result is as creepy and depressing as one might expect. Includes subtitles for the deaf.
