Loss. Obsession. Madness.

  • Excerpt: Pedro Almodóvar's macabre tale bears many thematic similarities to Alfred Hitchcock's "Vertigo." The director's oft-explored themes of sexuality and gender identity are added to the mix to create a style that is uniquely and unmistakably 'Almodóvar.

What a mix !

  • Excerpt: I saw this Blu-ray here in Brasil twice in two days. I use an Infocus 1080p in a 120" screen (the wall itself). The video quality is amazing. The sound is excellent. The movie is a mix of "Frankstein", "The Silence of The Lambs", some Tarantino things, what else? A lot, no doubt.

Weird and creepy.

  • Summary: I hadn't seen any of Almodovar's previous films, so wasn't sure what to really expect. I'd read up on the movie online to get a brief overview beforehand, so had a basic idea of the premise of the movie. A friend overseas had seen it and told me it gave her nightmares.

Excellent and Disturbing

  • Summary: Almodovar's expert craftsmanship of "The Skin I Live In" is parallel his central character's mastery of the art of skin surgery. At once engaging and fluid the narrative never becomes laborious or difficult.

sick and disgusting...just how I like it!

  • Summary: A bit weird, sick and disgusting...but quite watchable and remains interesting throughout, which is a rare thing considering Antonio Banderas is in the lead role :P...worth a look if you aren't too straight laced. 3 stars.

black fairy tale with a twist

Deb, Flicks

  • Summary: The trailer had me expecting Silence of the Lambs meets Frankenstein and I wasn't thinking I'd enjoy it. The Spanish setting, culture and architecture transport a kiwi viewer and allows belief to be suspended for this black fairy tale.

Strange, yet compelling

  • Summary: With 'The Skin I Live In' Almodovar is clearly looking to shock and disturb his audience. In fact the film is strongly reminiscent of Kim Ki-duk's best works. Banderas is fantastic as the brooding doctor, whilst Anaya is a knockout.
