    The Films Of Pedro Almodóvar: A Retrospective

    Pedro Almodóvar is one of the most respected filmmakers in the world, an Oscar winner whose films have become Cannes mainstays, and who's capable of attracting almost any talent that he'd like, despite having never made a film in the English language (although he says that one is on the one way soon...

    NYFF '11: Pedro Almodóvar Talks The Identity And Gender Themes Of ‘The Skin I Live In’

    Director Discusses Finding Humor In Tragedy, Differences Between Men And Women, And MoreWhen we first laid our eyes upon Pedro Almodóvar's "The Skin I Live In" at Cannes, we called it a film that "snaps between bright glittering glamour and dark, doomed horror," and emerges largely triumphant, "uniquely beautiful and distinctively imperfect." The reception for Almodóvar's latest in the Big Apple has been similarly apprehensive and appreciative; the audience's reaction at last Tuesday's press screening was a testament to the polarizing nature of the film. Almodóvar and stars Antonio Banderas and Elena Anaya were present with a translator in to...

    NYFF: Pedro Almodóvar Told Antonio Banderas To Watch Cary Grant Movies To Prep For 'Skin I Live In'

    The Director Reveals He's Not Doing A Biopic On Mina; Tension, Twists & More From The Team Behind The FilmPedro Almodóvar crafts a creepy Frankenstein-esque tale of rape, revenge, and survival in "The Skin I Live In" – a polarizing film which is one of his most ambitious yet. Because the movie features an unexpected twist halfway through the film, discussing it becomes difficult – how do you debate the themes, the issues and the meaning without giving it all away? We leave that task to the esteemed director and his cast that includes Antonio Banderas and Elena Anaya, who hit NYFF this week to present this latest concoction, a tale unlike anyt...

    John Cusack To Replace Tobey Maguire In Lee Daniels' 'The Paperboy'

    It's not too long since we last lamented the state of John Cusack's career: long one of our favorite actors, the decade or so since "High Fidelity" has seen at best, enjoyable-but-flawed movies like "Runaway Jury," "The Ice Harvest" or "1408," through to films that were barely released, like "Grace Is Gone" and "The Contract," to, at worst, pictures that were never released, like "Shanghai" and serial killer thriller "The Factory," both shot in 2008, and still sitting on the shelf. But signs are good for a comeback: he's playing Edgar Allan Poe in next year's period thriller "The Raven," he's written another dark comedy the Latin American sat...

    Pedro Almodóvar Says His Next Project Will Likely Be In English

    ¡No lo hagas, Pedro!Pedro Almodóvar may have just finished up his latest, "The Skin I Live In," but enterprising journalists in Cannes are already digging for details about his follow-up. The Spanish director's fifth film in the last decade has received mixed reviews, with our reviewer calling it "uniquely beautiful and distinctively imperfect," which hasn't stopped us from being excited to check it out for ourselves. Almodóvar is one of world cinema's most distinctive voices, having tackled every genre from comedy to melodrama to horror, usually switching between several of these in the same film. Despite success all around the world, includ...

    Cannes Review: Byzantine, Bloody Almodóvar Takes A New Direction With 'The Skin I Live In'

    But Will His Fans Follow Him?It is almost a given that detractors of the newest from Pedro Almodóvar will blurt out the film's baroque twists in their contortions to craft the glibbest dismissal possible; at the same time, a reluctance to spill those strange story points shouldn't be taken as an unequivocal endorsement. Of all the great modern European filmmakers, Almodóvar has recently felt like the one in most peril of turning his groove -- sumptuous surfaces, a tone between the operatic and the soap-operatic, each frame glossy with the delight of cinema like a lipstick smear from an ardent lover -- into a rut. With "The Skin I Live In," he...
