In the strategic, sophisticated and overwhelming campaign of promotion with which Pedro Almodvar supposedly important films wrap each of his, since the project arises until its commercial opening, without haste and pauses, administering implacably the type of publicity that his needs at every moment mimada creature, assured the author, the close friends who had read the script, and even the protagonist Antonio Flags who the skin that habit was entered in abyssal territories inhabited by a cold horror, crossed dangerous borders of difficult return, was conceived from the vertigo, was going to be darkest, obsessive, dangerous, dense and subversive the film that has never rolled. The thematic one of the fright always enjoys initially artistic prestige and intellectual, it can suppose an priceless adornment in the flowery curriculum of the author and demonstrate that besides knowing the secret to make laugh to the spectators or remove his feelings, also it owns the capacity to terrify them with histories and personages who approach the territories shadier and disturbed of the brain. That is, it lacked in its hyperwell-taken care of filmografa one of terror. Nonterror to the use, by all means, the one that appeals crudely to the easy scare and upsets in the efectismo, but fear with the seal of the Art, in capital letters. David Lynch moves like a disquieting dancer of experimental dance in those darknesses.
Or if there is to look for older references, it is very well that Almodvar mentions as model in the press conference of Dogs that the inspiration of the skin that habit is the tenebrous lyricism and the sickly one and subyugante atmosphere that chorreaba that one unclassifiable masterpiece of the Georges titled Franju the eyes without face. Also, few venerated directors in the present cinema like Michael Haneke, permanent retratista of the evil without theatricalities exist so, tared and sadistic, adult, youthful and infantile, that perpetrate without the felt minor of fault gratuitous atrocities. The treatment of the perversion grants much luster. It is a very advisable fashion and in the long term.
