Pedro Almodovar's The Skin I Live In gets an intriguingly bizarre theatrical trailer

My tastes often tend to veer towards the weird and more obscure, so naturally, among my most anticipated films this year is Pedro Almodvar's THE SKIN I LIVE IN, starring Antonio Banderas as a surgeon who seeks revenge on the man who raped his daughter.

There's been a teaser and an international trailer, but now we're being shown the first full domestic trailer for the film, and it continues to look oddly cool and absolutely bizarre. There's something to that very driving music that's been repeatedly used now for the film's trailers that gives it such an unusually interesting tone (coupled of course with the weird-as-f*ck imagery). Whatever it is, it's Almodvar. The guy is one of the masters in international cinema, so this for me is a must see.

THE SKIN I LIVE IN opens in limited release on October 14th.

Synopsis: Ever since his wife was burned in a car crash, Dr. Robert Ledgard, an eminent plastic surgeon, has been interested in creating a new skin with which he could have saved her. After twelve years, he manages to cultivate a skin that is a real shield against every assault. In addition to years of study and experimentation, Robert needed a further three things: no scruples, an accomplice and a human guinea pig. Scruples were never a problem. Marilia, the woman who looked after him from the day he was born, is his most faithful accomplice. And as for the human guinea pig...

I'm still new to Almodovar but of the films I've seen from him Volver and Bad Education. The guy can pretty much tackle any subject matter and leave you breathless. If the rumors are what I think it is this will also follow suit.
I don't know about the trailer, it make the film look pretentious and that's not really the director's thing.

Whoever put this trailer together is a fucking idiot. I hate when trailers don't hint to any sense of plot whatsoever. This looked like a bunch of disjointed shit. Again, a jab at whoever put this trailer together, and no one else.

I haven't seen an Almodovar flick yet I didn't like.
