SPOILER ALERT. Don’t read this review if you don’t want to spoil the movie before watching it, but I have to talk about the important plot points and ending to discuss the film. Pedro Almodovar’s the Skin I Live In initially feels like a remake of his earlier film Tie Me Up Tie Me Down also starring the stellar Antonio Banderas as a escape mental patient who holds a young woman captive in her apartment. In the Skin I Live In, Antonio Banderas has never been better in an Amodovar film. Skin is also easily one of Almodovar’s queerest film putting male desire center stage for a perverse critique.
