Aroview: A make-up artist juggles the dubious attentions of a porn stud, a philandering crime writer, and a trash TV journo. The perils of media opportunism spike this screwball cocktail in which Almodovar pushes the boundaries of his own questionable taste. Jean Paul Gaultier's outfits have supplanted those of Chanel, but this marks the first time the director's style and content have made noticeably uneasy bedfellows.
0 star (Not rated) Talk about a gateway drug. Kika was my mainline into Almodovar. It's far from his greatest film but what a place to start. The costumes alone are worth the price of entry.~Reverend Jim
