I have posted a youtube video link below to Moviedrome presenter Alex Cox’s introduction to acclaimed Spanish filmmaker Pedro Almodovar’s 1984 black comedy-drama What Have I Done to Deserve This?. Readers can also read Cox’s intro transcript here. The episode’s original airdate was September 20, 1993 (read here). Not much I can add here except to say that Cox’s thoughts on Spanish cinema in general is truly fascinating. As for myself, I have always been a huge fan of director/writer Pedro Almodovar’s films and while I would not rank What Have I Done to Deserve This? as high as some of his later works (Pain and Glory, Talk to Her and All About My Mother), it is still a great film nonetheless. If any of you readers are interested, here is a link to my favorite Pedro Almodovar films (read here).
