One of Almodovar's most rigorous films: stories within stories, identities within identities. Often times, it's hard to discern a point in his endings other than the points along the way: a genuine love of outsiders, a lust for life, and an even greater lust for fiction. This one is about how tangling the last two can get downright dangerous, and his abiding theme is the strange routes that life takes.
I'm in the minority, but I hated this film. Almodovar is a fine director whose work I often love and sometimes hate. Bad Education bored me. I found it to be claustrophobic, and I didn't like any of the characters enough to spend 2 hours with them. The acting was great, and I did want to know how it ended, but when all was said and done I would've preferred to have spent my time some other way.
when I was 18 I got six wisdom teeth pulled at once and watched like eight of Almodovar's films back to back in a deluded, Vicodin-induced dream-state. I remember nothing about this film except it was my favorite one
