REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..but nothing more than a derivative horror movie about plastic surgery..”
by Rex Reed [New York Observer]
“..taking a good deal of its running time to supply all of the backstory necessary to fully understand its first string of images, The Skin I Live In ends with no plot hole left unfilled..”
by Karina Longworth [Village Voice]
“..is not as it seems in this gender-bending thriller..”
by Joe Neumaier [New York Daily News]
