Avis des critiques

Influenced, according to Ridley, by Alice in Wonderland and the paintings of Andrew Wyeth, Skin is a tour de force of twisted gothic imagination, its deadpan horrors only enhanced by the stunning beauty of Dick Pope’s photography.
January 04, 2016
Reeking with allegory, Andrew Wyeth landscapes, undigested Flannery O’Connor, variable performances, and all kinds of ambition and pretension, this 1990 first feature by English writer-director Philip Ridley is an American gothic melodrama set in the Idaho prairies. It’s typical of the overall conception that mass murderers and child molesters figure as incidental characters and as a collective deus ex machina for a plot already so full of grotesqueries that they’re barely noticed.
