Pedro Almodovar films may not be for everyone but The Skin I Live In will surely turn a few moviegoers off. In the gender-bending thriller, Antonio Banderas wonderfully plays a geneticist testing an artificial skin on a woman he keeps locked in his house. While most Almodovar films aren’t what they seem, this drama has a particular twist and while he adds one too may subplots, Skin is still seductively satisfying.
