Tie Me Up! Tie Me Down!
Upon his release from a psychiatric hospital, Ricky (Antonio Banderas) sets out on a well-meaning but horribly twisted mission to kidnap a former lover (Victoria Abril) in the hopes she will fall in love with him. Writer-director Pedro Almodóvar plunges headfirst into explosive themes of sex and violence to create a gleefully camp examination of the ties that bind, which infamously spawned an MPAA lawsuit over its initial X rating. Passionate, provocative and perceptive, Tie Me Up! Tie Me Down! is a scintillating addition to our Odd Couples season.
