Drama, Thriller
Pedro Almodóvar’s best movie since 2004’s Bad Education is a sexy, morbid, disconcertingly arty, film-reference-drenched, mad-scientist tale – with Antonio Banderas excellent as a reclusive plastic surgeon holed up in his Toledo laboratory, performing diabolical experiments on his captive patient, a lithe young woman named Vera (Elena Anaya). What a difference a piece of source material can make. As adapted from a novel by French crime author Thierry Jonquet, the twisty story of Dr. Robert Ledgard’s violent obsession restores the unpredictability to Almodóvar. His tableaux sparkle with dark mischief, and his supporting players – Marida Paredes as the sinister housekeeper, Roberto Álamo as Zeca the Tiger Man, and Jan Cornet as a cruel playboy – crackle with all the energy missing from most of the director’s middle-period efforts. Almodóvar is back. Screenplay adaptation by Pedro and Agustín Almodóvar. (117 min.)
