Personal Quote:

When people in America talk about the great writer-director auteurs, they don't talk about Pedro Almodóvar enough. For 30 years, he has dwarfed almost all of his American peers. He went through a slightly weak period around the time of Kika (1993) and All About My Mother (1999). I didn't get Broken Embraces (2009), but it was still okay. But the things he's been doing the last seven years, he's ... See more »

Trivia:

Has said that the three films that have most influenced him as a director are: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly (1966) (which he says "is obvious"), Mario Bava's Black Sabbath (1963) (because that taught him the importance of having a distinct directorial voice), and Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein (1948) (because that taught him about mixing genres).

Trademark:

Interjects scenes with introduction of a character's background (Hugo Stieglitz is introduced in the middle of the Nazi torture scene in _Inglorious Basterds (2009)_, O-Ren is introduced with an interuption in the main story in _Kill Bill: Vol.1 (2003)_). See more »
