Film Series: Julieta

2016. Spain. Dir: Pedro Almodovar. With Emma Suarez, Adriana Ugarte. 92 min.


The melodramatic auteur’s latest turn arrives with less flamboyance than usual but no less heartbreak. Chance, memory, trauma, and tragedy circle a tale spanning two timelines (and two lead actresses in the title role). Based off of Alice Munro’s short stories, Julieta explores the interiority of a woman reconciling her past and present in glorious detail.

Film Series: What Have I Done to Deserve This? (¿Qué he hecho yo para merecer esto?)

1984. Spain. Dir: Pedro Almodóvar. With Carmen Maura. 101 min.

 

Almodóvar turns his flamboyantly perverse eye to a zany dysfunctional family: a pill-addled cleaning lady tries to maintain her sanity despite a letter-forging husband, a lizard-loving mother-in-law, a drug-dealing son, and another son she sells to a pedophile dentist.
