  1. Great list. I like the fact that The Skin I Live In is so high up your list. This is a truly disturbing, but phenomenal film. And Almodovar really finds it hard to beat his own classics – All About My Mother and Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown. These movies still remain ones of his greatest.

  2. Thank you for the kind words 🙂 Personally, I think The Skin I Live In may be the closest Almodovar will ever come in delivering an all-out horror film. Thanks for dropping by 🙂

  3. I totally agree with your ranking. I think Pain and Glory is a film for the ages! And Talk To Her is brillian!

  4. I hear ya 🙂 One wonders If Pain and Glory is semi-autographical since the lead character is a film director as well? 🙂 Anyway, thanks for dropping by 🙂
