[i]Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown, All About My Mother, Talk to Her, The Flower of My Secret, Live Flesh, Law of Desire, Matador, [/i]and [i]Bad Education.[/i] [img]http://www.oberlin.edu/fsc/FilmWebsiteGill/OBIE%20JPEGS/OnVerge%20copy.jpg[/img] [b]WOMEN ON THE VERGE OF A NERVOUS BREAKDOWN[/b] 1988 [b]Directed by [/b]Pedro Almodovar [b]Stars [/b]Carmen Maura, Antonio Banderas, Julieta Serrano, Rossy de Palma, Maria Barranco [b]R - [/b]language and brief nudity [i]In Spanish with English subtitles[/i] I saw this as part of Sony Pictures' [i]Viva Pedro [/i]film series at the Fine Arts Theater in Asheville, and I really enjoyed it. It's a hilarious, delightfully absurd film about a woman trying in vain to contact her former lover with some important information before he goes on a trip with his new girlfriend, her friend who somehow got involved with Shiite terrorists, the man's timid son, and his insane jealous wife. Brightly colored, keenly observed tale of controlled chaos demonstrates Almodovar at the height of his comedic talents.

[i]All About My Mother [/i]traces the journey of a woman determined to get the autograph of a star her son died trying to get, then ends up working for and befriending her while attempting to find the father her son had never met. Deeply moving and heartfelt, Almodovar's keen understanding of his strong female characters creates a strong bond between their plight and the audience. Heartwarming, tragic, and funny, Almodovar covers all the bases, with some of the best performances ever in one of his films. Penelope Cruz has never been better, and Cecila Roth deserved an Oscar nomination. A masterpiece, and one of the best films of 1999.

Haunting and moving study of love, obsession, and sexuality as only Almodovar can do it. Beautifully filmed, with a terrific score by Alberto Iglesias. This is probably Almodovar's most beloved film.

Dispensing with his usual sexual absurdism, Almodovar instead creates a dark, deeply personal movie within a movie about a transvestite (Bernal) helping make a movie about his experiences being sexually abused by a priest when he was a young boy in Catholic school. It begins as a tender love story between two young boys, moves into a film within a film, and ends up as a dark noir-ish thriller. [i]Bad Education [/i]is a brilliant, audacious film that throws convention to the wind and tells a story that is somehow beautiful, heart breaking, and deeply disturbing all at one time. [b]Almodovar's latest film, [i]Volver[/i], will be released on November 3rd, 2006.[/b]
