All About Almodovar
Somehow, my Pedro Almodovar-loving friends and I did not know about the festival of his movies running at the Harvard Exit (807 East Roy at Harvard) RIGHT NOW! In an effort to make sure none of you miss any future screenings, I thought I'd drop the schedule in SIFFBlog.
To be honest, I've only seen a few of his films: Tie Me Up, Tie Me Down and Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown. I saw them to feed my Antonio Banderas obsession, but ended up loving them for lots of other reasons, so I'm looking forward to catching a few more on the big screen.
Schedule of Films:
WOMEN ON THE VERGE OF A NERVOUS BREAKDOWN (1988): Sept. 1-7 Friday-Monday 2 p.m., 4:30, 7, 9:30; Tuesday-Thursday 4:30 p.m., 7, 9:30.
