This is undoubtedly the darkest of all Almodovar. Here, the director abandons almost completely melodramatic speech devoted to him and dives deeply into a realm of more psychological approach than usual, full of nuances and shocking. Proof that he is able to get out of your comfort zone and venture into original productions.

Perhaps the most intriguing aspect of The Skin I Live In is ... read more

I had been wanting to see this for a really long time as I really like Antonio Banderas. This however was not what I was expecting to see when I hit play. Elena Anaya is quite stunning and a great actress who really shows her skills in this. The story is quite unusual and different. This Indie film is artsy and beautifully filmed while still being able to disturb you easily. The chemistry of the c... read more

Since it had been years the last time I saw a movie directed by Pedro Almodovar, I was really eager to see this one, especially since it had received some stellar reviews. Well, I wasn't disappointed as it was easily his best movie in years. Indeed, it was a fascinating tale and the Spanish master delivered here a really strong thriller. On top of that, after 20 long years, he was working again wi... read more

Dr. Robert Ledgard (Antonio Banderas) is a driven plastic surgeon haunted by personal tragedies. After many years of trial and error, he finally perfects a new skin—a shield that could have prevented the death of his wife in an accident years earlier. His latest “guinea pig” is a mysterious captive whose true identity masks a shocking mystery. THE SKIN I LIVE IN is a masterful tale of secrets, obsession and revenge from Oscar-winning writer/director Pedro Almodóvar.

Movies the giraffe watched in 2021: May (57 movies items)

"First viewing - May 8th I'm doing an unofficial focus this month on Almodovar's films because Max has a handful of them, and I opted to kick things off with The Skin I Live In since it's so widely appreciated. And rightly so, though I felt like the non-linear approach was the one piece that didn't work so well. Granted it probably makes the film more interesting in some ways, but on an emotional level I felt like it lost some of its power. For what it is though the film works mostly well, and t"

Freaky Plastic Surgery On Film By Ashley Clark (10 movies items)

" Spanish director Pedro Almodovar’s chilling, but blackly funny, drama harked back to Franju’s Eyes Without A Face in its story of a sinister plastic surgeon (Antonio Banderas) keeping a mysterious young woman captive in a secret cell in his house. A warped study of obsession, family and retribution, The Skin I Live In has a scalpel-sharp sting in its tail."

" Date: 7/23/2020 Viewed: Amazon Prime Rental First Viewing Note: This is a movie that I always wanted to see for years now, but I never had the opportunity to see it. I finally rented the movie from Amazon Prime and I loved it. This is a great disturbing horror thriller from start to finish. It's been a while that my skin crawled when watching a horror movie (no pun intended). This movie is raw, disturbing, and crazy without being a gorefest. I loved the atmosphere that this movie has becau"
