Entre tinieblas (Dark Habits) (Dark Hideout)
In this Pedro Almodóvar film, a singer at a low-end nightclub hides out at a convent after her lover dies of a bad dose of drugs, and she meets a group of off-the-wall nuns while in hiding. The nuns range from one who writes sensationalist pulp fiction under a pseudonym to another who takes drugs, and another hooked on masochism. But their private lives and perverse foibles may be in jeopardy when a new mother superior arrives to take charge of the convent. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"It's all kitsch and no substance."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"Possibly the first work to hint at the tender sadness of [Almodóvar's]later phase"
‑ Fernando F. Croce, CinePassion
"Plenty of premise but little payoff."
‑ Nick Schager, Lessons of Darkness
"Dark Habits is a film in love with films and pop culture in general."
‑ Jeremy Heilman, MovieMartyr.com
"Almodóvar on crazy nuns should be as madcap as Peter Jackson was on zombies ( ... ) But the result is a rather low-key affair."
‑ Matthew Sorrento, PopMatters
"far drearier and lifeless than Almodóvar's best films"
‑ John A. Nesbit, Old School Reviews
"Mildly engaging, Dark Habits, Almodovar's third features about nuns on the run, is not as satirical or entertaining as his previous or later films."
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"It's hard to imagine how it could be any more Almodovar-esque than it is."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
