Listen Live

In several of his films, Spanish writer/director Pedro Almodóvar indulges a riotous zaniness, including "Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown," "Tie Me Up! Tie Me Down!" and "Volver." His newest "I'm So Excited" only periodically achieves the heights I expect from Almodóvar, though this much slighter film still delivers a few wonderfully zany moments.

"The Skin I Live In" Gets Under Your Skin

Film lovers applaud Spanish writer/director Pedro Almodóvar's entertaining playfulness uniquely combined with a social commentary. His newest film, The Skin I Live In/La Piel Que Habito, will reinforce his reputation for offbeat humor and inspired art direction in his strangest story yet. It combines the Frankenstenian, mad-scientist tradition with the Spanish telenovela-type melodrama complete with heightened emotional twists and turns.
