Antonio Banderas' Best (and Creepiest) Role in Years

The biggest shock in The Skin I Live In, Pedro Almodovar's 18th feature film, isn't the rape, the orgy, the suicides, or the forced sex change—it's Antonio Banderas. In his first collaboration in more than two decades with the director who launched his career, the Spanish actor is riveting as a dashing, monomaniacal doctor obsessed with engineering fire-resistant human skin. What makes the performance so unsettling? Even though his character is as mad as a bag of cats, Banderas plays him with such icy conviction that he almost seems sane. Opens October 14.
