Gael García Bernal stars in Almodóvar’s intricate hybrid of film noir, melodrama, autobiography, and Catholic Church exposé, “which continues Almodóvar’s excavation of the deepest emotions that dwell within established film genres” (New York Times). Merging separate timelines and stories along with sexual identities, Bad Education tracks back from a Madrid scriptwriter’s reunion with a former classmate to their Catholic school days, when they first discovered cinema, desire, and—in the form of their priest/teacher—fear. “In accounting for Almodóvar’s identity as an artist and man, Bad Education comes together like a bold and far-reaching summation of his career to date” (A.V. Club).
