"Bad Education"

Astrid said "I don't know much about the film, but it features a guy in drag and that'll do me." She was also told it was a bit of a comedy. With this in mind we saw a film with a drag queen indeed, and some black comedy in references to film noir, and a very large smattering of men getting it on with men, with a religious character abusing children and one character attempting a bizarre triple role.

This is the directing style of Pedro Almodóvar who obviously has talent, but has to develop the ability to stop making things seem more ridiculous than they need to be.
