Almodovar's early work is saltry, erotic, even perverse, but very seductive to watch

The "prolonged orgasm" is Almodóvar's format and tenor
September 22, 2006
It's a useful look at this Spanish auteur finding his way but lacks the elan of his later work.

The movie looks terrific and is acted with absolute, straight-faced conviction by the excellent cast...

September 23, 2003
A richly detailed, physically gorgeous movie (Almodovar's most professional-looking work to that time) that almost has too much on its mind.

The sincerity here is of a special cracked sort -- the brand that induces laughter but is undiminished by it.
January 1, 2000
Murder, mutilation, suicide and rape...[are] just a few of Matador's popcorn-incompatible themes. But [Almodovar] swirls his cape over these chargers so imaginatively, shamelessly and inventively, his flamboyance wins the day.

A consistently audacious fantasy of sex and violence set in a modern-day Madrid where everyone is ready to surrender to his or her particular passions.

If you're in the mood for an edgy, stylish piece of erotica, then "Matador" should leave you panting for more.
