    Almodovar reckons with his lonely gay twilight years via Antonio Banderas? Very much here for this...



    There's a long interview in The Guardian too where he fully admits the character is himself - not that it's exactly hard to figure out.

    Annoyingly I’ve just seen there’s a preview of this this evening at Harbour Lights. I’d have gone if I’d known earlier...

    Of course I'll be watching but I find his late period JAGGED MELODRAMA does nothing for me. He basically admitted he doesn't know how to write for normal people anymore so instead we get all these stilted dramas of mothers and daughters and pained lovers that are a world away from any sort of fresh naturalism which was what made him famous and popular in the first place, at least in Spain.

    I love me some Antonio but I can't say the trailer does anything for me either. It doesn't look very powerful but maybe I'll be tempted to see it.

    Ellie's 7 also doesn't fill me with confidence!
