After seeing Bad Education, I'm even more confident that Talk To Her is Almodovar's masterpiece, at least in terms of how it works out his pet themes that I find interesting. The only thing that lingers is that the version I saw of Bad Education might've been some R-rated cut, and that there might be more footage missing than just cock shots, of which there were none, which was what was supposed to make it an NC-17 film. The characters in Bad Education aren't nearly as sympathetic as those in Talk To Her, which is what helped me love that film so much. There is a really great opening credits sequence and a few great shots. Alex thinks Bad Education is the better film, but he is alone so far as I know.
