Certainly good and certainly Almodovar, but he has done better. This one feels like it gets lost in its structural device and sadly the things I found most interesting didn’t always seem to be the things the film did. I love the ending moment and the feeling presented, but can’t help but think I would have liked more time there and in the modern setting in general. Great art design. I love how he is able to pull off these very stylized palettes with them still feeling, maybe not natural, but not as stagey as it often does in other hands.
