Screening at TIFF this week is The Skin I Live In. I’m not a devout fan of Pedro Almodovar, there’s a cult of personality around him amongst cinephiles that I can’t relate to, so I kind of just take his films on a case by case basis. In this instance, he seems to have a winner on his hands. Mr. Disgusting writes in from Toronto with his review.
“While a film like ‘Human Centipede’ is designed to shock, ‘The Skin I Live In’ is specifically meant to purely define each character and engage the viewer by pulling on their empathetic strings… It isn’t the kind of genre film anyone will expect and it will catch many off guard. The best way to describe it is as a romanticized, modern day adaptation of ‘Frankenstein’ that ends with bite.”
