AVN Top 500 "A Flawless Adult Film. Raylene's Finest Performance" - AVN Hard to find and out of print, Paul Thomas directs this masterful period piece based in 17th Century Europe. Raylene stars as the title character Artemesia, the daughter of a master painter who is attempting to find her way through the pride and prejudices of artistic society in the 1600s. It is exquisitely filmed and a fairly accurate attempt at set design for an adult film. Raylene's performance was top-notch; winning her the AVN Best Actress award for 2001. Original Liner Notes: There were some things a woman was not supposed to do but in a world full of sexual temptation Artemesia was breaking all the rules.
