Rated: The Skin I Live In (2011)

“You are different. I am different as well.”

“I hate boring movies. By boring I mean movies that regurgitate the same chum that we’ve seen countless times before. I want some originality. I want something different that I haven’t seen before. Something a little weird, twisted. The Skin I Live In fits that bill, perfectly. Sure, it has the twisted, almost grotesque qualities of a Cronenberg film. And Almodovar’s latest film looks like all his other movies. It is also based on a book, not to mention the fact that the film’s visual style echos something made in the 1960’s but with modern production values. Regardless of all these similarities, The Skin I Live In is something new and exciting. Trust me on this one.”
