#90 Pedro Almodóvar Ranked List
I got into Almodóvar with Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown, which was followed by disappointments until I gave up in frustration. While I liked the under-appreciated Live Flesh, it was my dislike of All About My Mother that made me think the director is simply not for me (since everyone else loved that movie.) The Skin I live in and Volver have re-ignited my optimism to where I'm ready to give Almodóvar a fresh appraisal.
ICM suggests I look at his early works What Have I Done to Deserve This?
and Law of Desire
, but I'm more interested in his newer films, particularly The Flower of My Secret
. I would like to rewatch Live Flesh
to see if it still holds for me and if I'm in the mood, I'd like to take a 2nd look at All About My Mother
