Almodovar

8 posts in this topic

I just watched his latest film "I'm So Excited" (2013) a farce set aboard a disaster bound plane very broad, strangely static and like most his films very gay.

My favorite Almodovar "Matador"(1986), the very sexy "Law of Desire"(1987)  and of course his break out hit " Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown" (1988). His other grear films are " "LIve Flesh"(1997) "All About My Mother (1999) and "Talk to Her" (2002)- any of these are worth a look.

I've seen several of them and enjoyed them all, but I don't remember which is which!  I particularly remember a very amusing one with nuns.

Almodovar is a classic film fan- you can see the influence of Sirk and Hitchcock in his work ( and of course John Waters...)

I love the films of Pedro Almodovar.  He is so often over-the-top.  And that quality is his great charm. 

 

I am crazy about "Law Of Desire" (1987), "Bad Education" (2004) and "Volver" (2006).

"Bad Education" - a film so dense that it's spellbinding.
