The Skin I Live In
Pedro Almodóvar

Pedro Almodóvar again reveals his genius for turning the ridiculous into the sublime with this creepy skin flick - a melodramatic thriller that is sombre but never sober and that moves through time and space with much of the boldness and style we’ve come to expect from Spain’s leading director...Almodóvar’s ambition sometimes overtakes his writing, and at points his storytelling tends towards being more knotty than ever. It’s also a film that’s more interesting in its unveiling than conclusion...

Mostly, though, this is a wonderfully strange, oddly sexy and attractively perverse mystery. The less said about the story, the better, as it’s built on slow revelations and quick surprises. The Skin I Live In is rooted in pain and loss, which pulls the film’s melodramatic side into a more thoughtful, provocative place than its surface suggests. - Dave Calhoun, Time Out London, 24–31 August 2011.

Members only. Membership available at the door.
