Antonio Banderas is back! ‘The Skin I Live In’ is a bizarre, sometimes creepy, completely unpredictable psychological sort-of horror love story (none of the genres quite fit, though horror may be the closest).

You might go so far as to call it a revamped modern-day twist on Romeo and Juliet, but that would imply a certain plot progression and foreseeable outcome that is simply not there.

This movie is as unpredictable as it is random. It is bizarre and engaging. The musical score is fantastic.

It was confusing at times, but not so confusing that it compromised the integrity of the film; and all was revealed by the end. I’d like to say more, but this is one of those films that is best left to speak on it’s own. For maximum impact, skip the plot summaries/spoilers and just go see it.
