Labyrinth of Passion ★★★½

For the record: "Sexilia" must be one of the best character names in a movie ever. Early Almodovar full of shock, irreverence, coincidences, identity switches, musical numbers, incest, rape, flashbacks, psychological disorders and a young sexy Antonio Banderas, but a little less fun than it could have been; not cause it's short on ideas clearly but just didn't have a great way to congeal everything that he'd soon figure out and eventually master a few years later in Matador. The film after this - Dark Habits is a straight masterpiece.
