Two things always guaranteed to excite me are a new Almodovar film and an out of sight poster. Here's one of the colorful and quite eye popping designs for Pedro's newest which comes out later this year. Sort of related, I didn't bother saying much about the Oscars this year but my favorite moment (along with Sean Penn's shout out to Mickey Rourke and the incredibly genuine look on Anne Hathaway's face while Shirley Maclaine presented her nomination) was when Penelope Cruz went out of her way to mention both Almodovar and Bigas Luna in her speech...a very classy and sincere move by a really fine actress whose never forgotten the film community she came from. I can't wait to see her newest collaboration with one of my favorite directors.
