11 thoughts on “My Favorite Pedro Almodovar Films (2023 Edition)”
I own all the Amodovar films on DVD up to the year 2011. I have yet to get around to buying his more recent films.
My number one favourite is What Have I Done To Deserve This, followed closely by All About My Mother.
Best wishes, Pete.
Interesting to see Pete that your number one favorite film of his was one of his early ones before he really hit his stride 🙂 Nevertheless, I love What Have I Done To Deserve This every bit as much as the others – after all, I love all of his films 🙂
I actually know a couple of these! Tie Me Up, Tie Me Down, and Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown. I didn’t realize how much this director favors Antonio Banderas–which I’m all for, ’cause I adore Antonio, myself.
I hear ya Stacy 🙂 Almodovar and Banderas truly work magic together – the former behind the camera and the latter in front of it 🙂
I still haven’t seen any Pedro Almodovar films. What Have I Done To Deserve This? was shown on Alex Cox’s Moviedrome. The intro is on my youtube channel.
I wrote another post in the Tomas Milian thread. I thought that was the appropriate place for it. Be sure to read it.
Also, how about doing a happy belated bday post for Warren Oates?
Thank you for the heads up about What Have I Done To Deserve This? I can’t remember If I used your link for the intro, but I shall check it soon 🙂
I just replied back on that one Steve 🙂
Steve, a belated happy birthday for Warren Oates sounds like a great idea – I shall do that one next 🙂
