Critic Reviews for Labyrinth of Passion
Almodovar sends up Freudian seriousness in regard to sex hilariously and even appears (in drag) in front of the camera singing a couple of raunchy songs.May 29, 2020 | Full Review…
A glamorous clash of frocks and jocks (and jocks in frocks) in a Madrid peopled by drug-takers, pop stars, wannabes, terrorists and sex maniacs.June 24, 2006 | Full Review…
[Labyrinth of Passion]...shows off the bright, gaudy visual style, the breezy manner and the exuberant energy that are Mr. Almodovar's particular virtues.August 30, 2004 | Rating: 4/5
Though coarser and cheaper than Almodovar's later efforts, this comic orgy is prototypically Pedrovian.
An early and rather choice effort from Spanish filmmaker Pedro Almodovar.
Almodovar (who has a cameo as a leather-jacketed transvestite rock singer) has already learned (somewhat) how to pull off such a difficult act, by treating the potentially offensive with such cartoonish abandon that it becomes ridiculous to take offense.
Audience Reviews for Labyrinth of Passion
Jan 28, 2014Better than his first, "Labyrinth of Passion" starts slow, builds slow, and has an over-the-top obnoxious finale that actually made the grueling 75 minutes prior worth it.Jason 123 D Super Reviewer
Apr 15, 2010Early and great Almodovar! We start to see what become recurring themes in his later films - homosexuality, prostitutes and cross dressers..all representing deep held emotions and feelings that are experienced by us all.John B Super Reviewer

Dec 19, 2009A camp melodrama/comedy about Sexilia (a nymphomaniac), Sadec (a gay Islamic terrorist), Riza Niro (the son of the emperor of Tiran), and Queti (the daughter of a dry-cleaner). When Riza Niro discovers that Sadec and his colleagues are after him, he disguises himself as a punk rocker, and falls in love with the stunning Sexilia, his first straight relationship. Meanwhile Queti, Sexilia's "biggest fan", helps Sexilia come to terms with her new life-style.Wahida K Super Reviewer
