Bad Education Movie Review by Movie Addict (9/12/2007)

It is hard for Almodovar to exceed expectations, as he is always daring and creative in his films, and one expects them to be excellent.

The depiction of the abuse of power by Father Manalo on the two...

Bad Education Movie Review by Sheryl (2/1/2005)

I love Almodovar. As always, he plays with gender roles, sexuality, and the deep dark desires of us sordid human beasts, but does it with a color and an artist's benign touch. It's sort of like being picked up in Dorothy's tornado...

Bad Education Movie Review by Elizabeth (11/23/2004)

Like the betrayed lover in "Breathless," who styles himself after a tough-talking black and white film hero, the characters in "Bad Education" look to the fantasies offered in the movie theater and on the stage as their own patterns to follow. And like anyone enmeshed in the desperate cons of film noir, these characters...
