Movie Reviews

Reason Online - 11/10 by Kurt Loder The story begins in hypnotic ambiguity, then suddenly thrusts us into stunned astonishment.
Birmingham Post - 10/10 by Graham Young Almodóvar's round-the-houses, mid-film flashback might not feel as if it's working at the time, but the set-up for the denouement is quite extraordinary.
Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC) - 10/10 by Ken Hanke It will almost certainly be in the top two or three on my 'best of 2011' list, and it's a film I can't wait to see again.
Village Voice - 10/10 by Karina Longworth [An] ever-unfurling, ultimately infuriating web of a film.
eFilmCritic.com - 10/10 by Peter Sobczynski Dark, demented and oddly tender at its admittedly bleak center, "The Skin I Live In" is one of those films that viewers will either love or loathe in equal measure--I cannot imagine anyone coming away from something like with a "meh" reaction.
St. Paul Pioneer Press - 10/10 by Chris Hewitt (St. Paul) Almodovar shoots himself in the foot with a too-tricky structure, resetting "Skin" with a new set of characters at about the halfway point.
Sarasota Herald-Tribune - 9/10 by Christopher Lloyd A wonderfully twisted cinematic expedition into territory rarely traveled.
Minneapolis Star Tribune - 9/10 by Colin Covert Time and again this mad masterwork has you thinking, "Oh, no, they wouldn't dare go there." And then it goes several steps further.
Oregonian - 9/10 by Shawn Levy Once again, Almodóvar proves a graceful stylist and poised provocateur with a streak of sexual daring and potent gifts for melodrama, comedy and pathos.
Combustible Celluloid - 9/10 by Jeffrey M. Anderson With The Skin I Live In, Almodovar adopts a playfully wicked attitude, similar to the one James Whale used on Bride of Frankenstein.
Metromix.com - 9/10 by Geoff Berkshire You won't want to have a single one of the deliciously juicy twists spoiled before you see it, the pleasure of discovering ... is part of what makes the experience such a knockout.
CinemaDope - 9/10 by Glenn Lovell Yes, it's over-the-top. But gloriously so. When we tangle/tango with Almodóvar, we know to expect outrageous plot twists, sudden detours into the kinky and melodrama ...
