Todo sobre mi madre

Pedro Almodóvar Spain, 1999

Natalie Guevara's rating of the film All About My Mother

Almodovar's movies always feel like really well-executed, self-referential soap opera episodes to me. I KNOW SPAIN IS IN EUROPE & NOT LATIN AMERICA, but there is something so essentially "Latino" about his movies: they're like coming home. I love young, unspoiled Penelope Cruz, "All About Eve" references & trannies, always.
