The guys have seen Pedro Almovodar dance around darkness in all of his films. None of them compare to the terror of The Skin I Live In. It’s a puzzle box mystery about a woman who appears to be held captive in a very rich house while she wears a strange medical skinsuit. With every episode of Let’s Take Five, the guys are looking at the film as a whole so all of the major spoilers will be discussed in this one. So if you haven’t seen it, we recommend watching this dark horror thriller first. (Warning there are major themes of sexual assault in this film.)
