The iconoclastic Spanish filmmaker Pedro Almodóvar may have made his reputation as an enfant terrible, but his contributions to world cinema — 20 feature films; Oscars®, Golden Globes, Goyas, Donatellos and César awards; a career retrospective at MoMA — now place him in the category of grand master.
His early films scandalized and delighted audiences with their hyperbolic scenarios and sardonic comedy — full of risqué sexual behavior, riotous color, profane passions and flamboyant fashions. His later work features more serious-minded melodrama and truly transgressive thrillers, with full-blooded characters, impressively intricate plotting and sincere emotionalism.
As Almodóvar continues to grow as an artist, his work takes its rightful place among the greats of world cinema. Following wide acclaim for his latest masterpiece JULIETA, AFI Silver presents a thorough survey of Almodóvar's feature films.
All films in the series are in Spanish with English subtitles.
