[06 Jul 2009|09:24pm]

I have a spare ticket to Broken Embraces for Film4's Summer Screen at Somerset House. I thought I was going to be able to find somebody to go to London with, but being a loner and everything, well...

Not making any promises, but if anyone that wanted to go and can no longer find tickets, I'm probably going to end up giving my spare away. Oh and if anybody knows the best places to wander around alone in London, that would be great too.

Almodovar's Movie At Cannes Film Festival [20 May 2009|04:35pm]

Penelope Cruz came to the Cannes Film Festival for the premiere of her brand new movie 'Broken Embraces'. She shot 'Broken Embraces' with Pedro Almodovar at the same time as making 'Vicky Cristina Barcelona' with Woody Allen.

Asked to compare working with Almodovar and Allen, the actress said: "They could not be more different. With Pedro we always rehearse for a long time before. Woody doesn't like to rehearse. He really likes everybody to improvise. It's really a very different way of approaching things".

The picture, Almodovar's fourth collaboration with Cruz, recalls 'films noirs', classic comedies and screen sirens of the past. Cruz plays Lena, a secretary who ends up in a relationship with her wealthy boss Ernesto.

Hi I'm Amanda and I loove the genious that is Almodovar.

Sadly I've only been able to watch " Volver", "Todo Sobre Mi Madre", and "Hable Con Ella" my local Blockbuster doesn't seem to have the rest. I was wondering where can I find his other movies? I'm dying to watch them.

Jonathan Ross For 1 Week Only--Pedro! [13 Jun 2008|04:29am]

[ mood | giddy ]

i had no idea that this even existed!  (and if this has been posted before, please let me know!) British TV Interviewer, Jonathan Ross, sat down with Pedro and four other 'hot' directors (the others being David Lynch, Aki Kaurismaki from Finland and Alejandro Jodorowsky who worked primarily in Mexico.) You Tube user PaulKuk,who posted these, states that IMDB only lists Lynch as the subject of Ross' interviews (which was the probably the case when he posted them last year and that seems to have been corrected). This was done about the time ¡Átame! (Tie Me Up! Tie Me Down!) was released in 1990. You can find the other parts after the first one. ¡Disfruten!

Pedro's Women [27 Apr 2008|04:49pm]
I am composing a research study on good old Pedro, and am looking into his representation of women in film (seems kinda popular in this community...sorry!!) I’ve chosen my three favourite films of his; ‘Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown’, ‘All About My Mother’ and ‘Volver’, as I feel these promote a wide range of female roles, and do not just encompass the stereotypical female dichotomy of ‘mother or whore’ as many Hollywood mainstream, or even many other Spanish films do.
As a big fan of Almodovar I have generated many of my own opinions concerning this topic, but what do you guys think? What are your favourite Pedro films? Have you noticed that Pedro embraces femininity and elevates the importance of women, or do you think it’s a negative that he places so much of an emphasis on their emotions, and portrays them as constantly struggling? And what about the transsexual characters – what do you think they stand for?
I’d love to hear any of your opinions as I think this is such a debatable theme in his films, and I’m sure you’ve got some extremely interesting things to say! thank youuuuu :)

Representation Of Women [16 Jun 2007|11:49am]

Hi everyone,

I’m new to this community, so I don’t know if this is allowed, but I need your help.

As part of my A2 Media course I have to put together a research project about Almodovar’s Representation Of Women

Any opinions or insights any of you have would be great.

For example:
Are there any common factors that link the women in his films?
Do you think his sexuality affects his depiction of women?
Anything else you thing would be useful for me.

¡Hola amigos!
Estoy segura que casi todos aqui han visto "La mala educación". ¡Quisiera preguntar sobre el actor Gael García Bernal que me gusta muchísimo! ¿Ha representado los papeles en otros películas de Almodóvar, no? ¿En cuáles?
Si alguien lo sabe, escribidme por favor :)

Hey my name is Jace. I have just recently joined this community in hopes of meeting other individuals who appreciate the masterful works of ALmodovar. Living in the US I feel that it is a shame how unfamiliar people are with ALmodovar's work, it's disappointing to think that Volver hasn't even been released in the states whilst it's been released throughout Europe as early as March. I was fortunate enough to watch Volver in Rome over the summer, and was not in the slightest disappointed.

Long time Pedro fan [09 Sep 2006|04:34pm]

My name is James and I have been a big fan of Pedro Almodovar. In the 1980's my family was stationed at the Navy base and my father met Pedro during one of his films. My parents passed their love of Almodovar to my sister and I. I have watch a lot of Almodovar films while I was growing up including " High Heels" My favorite film has to be between Kika and Women on the verge. My favorite actress is Rossy de Palma. I recently got a chance to go see the Viva Pedro at the Music Box Theatre and enjoyed experiencing the rebirth of Almodovar's body of work on the screen once more. I do have a question, How do you pronounce his last name? I keep messing up. I know that I won't get a chance to see " Volver" because I live near Indianapolis.
