Doctor's Review of The Skin I Live In
The Skin I Live In(2011)
One of those films that seems like a fit for only one particular director, and Pedro Almodovar is certainly the right man to tell this tale of twisted sexuality. I can't say much about the plot because it revolves around a mystery of identity that is revealed late in the game and will change your whole perspective if you watch a second time. Suffice to say this is an engrossing, startling, and slowly unfolding story surrounding a mad doctor who seemingly still has most of his marbles. A good film but I can't help think that Rod Serling could've told the same story and manipulated the same emotions over 50 minutes. Of course, he'd have to move his show to pay cable and find some skin HE could live in.
