Holy smokers, this movie's plot will blow your mind and leave you feeling plenty uncomfortable. By now, most moviegoers know director Pedro Almodovar is out there. The Skin I Live In takes it waaaaaaay out there. It also goes to show if you give Antonio Banderas a meaty role in his own language that he has a far greater acting range than he seems to have in English-speaking roles.
Needless to say this is a clever yet creepily inventive movie that not only flips the psycho-sexual thriller on its edge but walks it around the block a few times and spits it out in a horrifying mix of sexual perversity, very dubious medical ethical choices and a weirdness you're not likely to see anywhere else.
Extras on the DVD are a waste. The "Making Of" is a just 12 minutes of raw footage where you see cameras and boom mics in scenes. The "Red Carpet NYC Premiere" is better as you hear from the actors and director but it is extremely short.
