High Heels ★★★½

Almodovar in melodrama noir mode, what they might've called a Women's Picture on steroids, the music is great, the imagery of the heels is powerful - don't really even mind the obviousness of the double identity - but like a few of his other early 90s films there's just a second act lag that drains the film of its momentum - 
I'm sort of stuck on the long scene where the three women discuss their involvement with the murder - kept hoping it'd go into a visual representation of what went down - clearly it's a situation of having the audience imagine and visualize while looking for the truth in their faces and voices but I couldn't really get behind it and it felt like the death knell of the movie's pacing 
Prob in the lower tier of his work
