  1. Katya Kazbek's rating of the film Law of Desire

    I do love me some queer melodrama, and Almodovar pulled it off splendidly, with a fresh take, and without killing, as I dreaded, the transwoman. Funny, sweet, and entertaining. Did not expect the ending.

  3. Wee Hunk's rating of the film Law of Desire

    That which was established in Matador was further developed with this film. This one goes a bit harder down the soap opera road than the thriller road. Loaded with style, it would take a while before he reached full mastery in the late 1990s and early 2000s.

  5. Bruna de Moura's rating of the film Law of Desire

  6. Duncan Gray's rating of the film Law of Desire

    80s Pedro! And from what I've read, the first of his films to take Queerness as its subject. His approach to drama is always a bit loopy, less like a 3-act classic and more like the world's smartest, most aesthetically pleasing string of soap opera episodes. Moment that brings it together: the hero throwing his typewriter—a device that tangled his art and his sex life—out the window in a glorious explosion.

  9. Diogo Moreira's rating of the film Law of Desire

    So beautiful, although so tragic. I loved the movie, but hoped a little more of the ending. Also think that Maura's story had a lot more to offer and could have been better worked. The movie is really good tho.

  10. Oussssama's rating of the film Law of Desire

    The story kinda took a wrong turn at some point, but it's still a good movie by a great filmmaker. Since his early stuff, he knew how to make simple things look very beautiful

    There is no law when it comes to desire.

  12. Vincent T's rating of the film Law of Desire

  13. CafeGradiva's rating of the film Law of Desire

  14. Kevin You's rating of the film Law of Desire

    Mercilessly captures the tyrannical nature of desire. Lets audience experience the one epic love affair they secretly crave but can't ever bring the courage to realize.

  22. ach's rating of the film Law of Desire

    the plot is not quite the one written up in green.

  23. Tabikenezer von Higglesbloom's rating of the film Law of Desire

    I rly wish Laura P. was it's own film cus that aspect/Tina were the most interesting parts imo, but I did rly like his take on noir even if it's somewhat all over the place. That last scene is great.

  24. João Biscaia's rating of the film Law of Desire

    Half beautiful, half ridiculous. In that order.
