    I felt like I was looking at my mom through Penelope’s eyes.  She was all I could think of as I watched the film.  
    I love love love how Almodóvar sees women and the way he tells his stories.

    The Skin I Live In

    ★★★★½

    Part of the greatness of this film is in its unexpected twists, and you certainly don’t want any spoilers for this one.

    I love the bizarre story, the performances, Almodóvar’s misleading use of flashbacks, the colors, the score... that score is BEAUTIFUL!

    To many more Almodóvar films in my future 🍷

    ★★★½

    Unexpectedly heavy! I love a dark, twisted comedy and it delivers.
    Jesse Eisenberg was good as his USUAL awkward and nerdy character. He's awesome!
