BONUS: Kika & The Skin I Live In
Inkoo Kang and Daniel Schroeder discuss two of Almodóvar's most controversial films. First we talk about 1993's Kika, its uncontrollable plot, and how oddly the only scene that seems to work is the one where Almodóvar attempts to make rape funny. Then we get into 2011's The Skin I Live In, the film that divided us the most. We go through the chilly horror of it all, the movie's approach to the physical body, and why it made the skin Daniel lives in crawl. Podcast production by Daniel Schroeder.
