Almodovar: The Skin I Live In

From the New York Film Festival, David D’Arcy reviews The Skin I live In, the latest camp-horror tale from Pedro Almodovar. Antonio Banderas plays a plastic surgeon, teaming up with Almodovar for the first time in almost 20 years. Beware of a villain with a scalpel in his hand, and a Titian nude on his wall.

Editor’s Note: Antonio Banderas stars in the movie. David D’Arcy’s critical comparison is to Jeremy Irons.

  1. Jeremy Irons is NOT in this movie. It’s Antonio Banderas.

      D’Arcy commented that not since Jeremy irons’s performance has somebody acted a part like this. It was a comparison not a statement that JIrons was in the movie.
