Critic Reviews of "The Skin I Live In"St. Louis Post-DispatchNovember 23, 2011
Few filmmakers are more assured or alluring, even when we fear we're following a monster.Detroit NewsNovember 18, 2011
There are few filmmakers -- David Lynch comes to mind, Woody Allen -- who have a completely unique way of imprinting a film. Nobody but Pedro Almodóvar could have made The Skin I Live In. And that's high compliment.Denver PostNovember 04, 2011
These are questions one is left with -- and that's not an entirely satisfying feeling. Yet it's hard not to be drawn into the story, and even more, into the gorgeous storytelling.VarietyNovember 03, 2011
Despite its scalpel-like precision, pic falls short of its titular promise, never quite getting under the skin as it should.Hollywood ReporterNovember 03, 2011
Only someone as talented as Almodóvar could have mixed such elements without blowing up an entire movie.Dallas Morning NewsNovember 03, 2011
Pedro Almodóvar wows with the meticulous visual design of his films, but sometimes his narrative architecture is every bit as dazzling.Bangkok PostMay 09, 2016
In Almodovar's world, the flesh is deception, the comedy dark, the sex weird and the tears real; this time, however, the director just wasn't able to pull off all of these elements.Critic's NotebookOctober 07, 2015
"The Skin I Live In" fails because it doesn't have a moral or anything else to say in spite of its self-seriousness.Film Comment MagazineNovember 05, 2013
Almodóvar has a body of work as rigorously personal as any out there, and, even with its flaws, he wears this latest Skin rather well.Film Comment MagazineJuly 01, 2013
Despite the typically invigorating sense of line and framing, The Skin I Live In withholds the director's customary satisfactions and affirmations. The result is a saga of obsession that, in its saturnine undertone, maintains a hard-to-enjoy integrity.DeadspinJune 23, 2013
This is a lush, deeply pleasurable film to experience on a sensory level; Almodovar couldn't produce a boring frame if he left the lens cap on.We Got This CoveredMarch 02, 2013
Pedro Almodovar's The Skin I Live In, a terrific, twisty thriller that is one of the filmmaker's best and one of the year's best films.
