This week is a block all about women and whoops, Sarah is out sick this week. J.C., Pedro and Austin tackle the slate in her absence as they look at the incredible Pedro Almodovar film, All About My Mother. They also listen to Yeah Yeah Yeah’s hit single, Maps, and watch the intense Australian prison drama, Wentworth.
Pedro, we hardly knew you! After five films, the guys wrapped-up their look at the work of Pedro Almodovar. They look back at the legacy around the artist and their own rankings of his films. They also make a big announcement on what is next for the podcast. Get excited!
The guys return to the world of Pedro Almodovar for a different type of story. While last week was a fun farce, All About My Mother looks at a group of women all facing a personal tragedy. They have to come to grips with the death of a child and loved ones facing terminal illnesses. While it’s more somber material, this film highlights Almodovar’s warmest elements as he praises the roles of female friendships and the power of melodrama.
