Live Flesh

Posted by martinteller on August 27, 2007

Here Almodovar sets up an intriguing love triangle (or pentagon, I suppose) but unfortunately doesn’t go very far with it.  The characters are wonderful as always, including the most sympathetic stalker you’ll ever see.  And the photography is nice, although not quite as strong as his other work.  It just didn’t go anywhere unexpected.  And the political message was just clumsily tacked on.  Nice, but not stunning.  Contained clips from Bunuel’s Criminal Life of Archibaldo de la Cruz which REALLY made me want to watch that movie again.  Rating: 7
