Are Movies Even Being Serious Anymore?


Foxnews – Spanish director Pedro Almodovar’s latest thriller, “The Skin I Live In,” had filmgoers fleeing the theater Thursday night at its gala premiere at the Cannes Film Festival, due to some aggressively violent and disturbing content. The film, which stars Antonio Banderas and budding actress Spanish actress Elena Anaya, focuses on a mad but brilliant surgeon (Banderas) who kidnaps a man who raped his daughter. The doctor’s daughter killed herself from the grief and it drives him to take very drastic measures. This is where it gets complicated and disturbing.  Banderas then gives the rapist a sex change and transplants his deceased daughter’s face onto his body. He later has sex with the man he has brutally experimented on and turned into a woman. Guests, among them a group of sweepstakes winners flown specially to Cannes by Stella Artois from the U.S. to enjoy a once in a lifetime movie premiere were horrified by the experience.  Critics have also fallen in love with the upsetting film and are placing it in contention for the highest Cannes honor, the Palme d’or.

Jesus fucking Christ!  What the fuck kind of script is this?  Talk about getting greedy.  You got Elena Anaya in a sex thriller.  That’s all you need.   Just throw together some average plot lines and you got yourself a movie.  But this idiot director couldn’t leave well enough alone.  Nope.  He has to make this into a freakshow.  Dude kidnapping his daughter’s rapist,giving him a sex change, sticking his daughters face on the dude and then raping his ass.  Where is the pageantry in that?    Just keep it simple stupid.  Hot chick getting stuffed by heterosexual males.  Done and done.  None of this wacko shit.   And spare me the critics loved it bullshit.  Yeah no shit. That’s why critics have no credibility.    As long as something is really fucked up and makes people think to themselves “what the fuck is this shit” they think it’s good.
