There are few filmmakers -- David Lynch comes to mind, Woody Allen -- who have a completely unique way of imprinting a film. Nobody but Pedro Almodóvar could have made The Skin I Live In. And that's high compliment.
"The Skin I Live In" is like a David Cronenberg horror film as made by a director who doesn't fear the body but revels in it, who is too sensual and amoral by nature to find anything truly disgusting or foreign.
Though the story boils over with extreme acts of passion and vengeance, Almodóvar's examination of these two damaged people's troubled coexistence remains a cold (if impressively executed) formalist exercise.
