image preview

The next screening at Linenhall Film Club is Pedro Almodóvar’s The Skin I Live In. The acclaimed director of Volver, Talk to Her, and many more, Almodóvar's latest film is a macabre suspense thriller is about obsession, drawing the work of David Lynch and Cronenberg as well as Hitchcock into his directorial palette in a melodramatic offering more redolent of his earlier films. Also harking back, the film sees the return of Antonio Banderas to Almodóvar's repertory company, as a plastic surgeon seeking to develop an artificial skin after his wife has died as a result of horrific burns caused by a tragic car crash. Offbeat, perhaps, compelling and dazzling film-making, certainly. Linenhall Film Club shows every second Tuesday.

I lost all love for Adam Sandler films a long time ago, as they all seemed to be the same old thing on endless repeat, however I am willing to re-evaluate my opinion of him as Just Go With It managed to keep the annoying at bay and the hilarious gags coming.
