Los amantes pasajeros

Pedro Almodóvar Spain, 2013

João Biscaia's rating of the film I'm So Excited!

After La Piel Que Habito this comes as a downgrade on Pedro's work and he manages to try a little too hard every so often. Nevertheless, it feels like Almodóvar: queerful and entertaining like Entre Tinieblas, intriguing and sharp like Mujeres Al Borde De Un Ataque de Nervios. It's well written and the hour and a half flies by. But I've had a taste of Almodóvar directing a crime/thriller in 2011 and I want it back.
