Review: La mala educacion

At first I am really impressed. I mean, my favourite Almodovar's movie is still "Todo sobre mi madre", but "La mala educacion" is really good!
Then I start thinking about it, and what I think is that the movie is good, but not interesting. It's like the game of the Chinese boxes; every box is beautiful, wonderful, and the idea that a box contains another smaller box is charming, but when you reach the end, the last box, you realize that is only a box within a box within a box within a box within a box. And a box within a box within a box within a box within a box is only a box within a box within a box within a box within a box, nothing interesting.
I don't like it.

  1. Hmm…
    Well, after watching it for the second time, I still feel oddly unsatisfied.

    I have, however, enjoyed the graphic sex scenes and perverse humour (that at many times, were not humorous). I don't know if that is present in all of Almodovar's films. Have been meaning to watch "All About My Mother".

  2. Well, I would have really enjoyed those scenes, but near me there was a girl that kept screaming "Oh my gooood!" everytime that two (biological) male bodies were nearer that an inch.
    You know, the beauty and the joyfulness of a movie sometimes depend from the kind of people you sit near…

  3. Todo Sobre Mi Madre is one of the greatest films I have ever seen…

  4. Sadly, that is true. Many times I have been deprived of a films fullest potential by sitting next to a smelly person.
