All about my "Movida madrileña"
27 March 2002 | by (Madrid) – See all my reviews

Almodovar was an employer in a very important telephonical center when he directed this film. He was like in Doctor Jeckyll and Hyde, a man with a double life: a young and shy worker during the day, and a crazy artist in the night. The mytical Rockola Discotheque, where Almodovar and his friend Fabio McNamara has singed songs so greatest as "Satanasa", "Gran Ganga" or "Suck it to me", there was la "movida madrileña", years when Madrid was similar to Paris in 1900, a mix of cultures and young artists, a bohemian atmosphere, another world that Almodovar showed in his cult movie. When Pedro filmed this film, he had never seen a John Waters`film, he didn`t know anything about John Waters and Pink Flamingos! but he was friend of Alaska, the greatest spanish diva who debut in this film as an actress. Alaska is one of the most intelligent girls in the world, she knows everything about King Arthur, Comics, Universal Monsters, Troma, 70`s Music and, of course, she has discovered the John Waters movies before anyone in Spain. Alaska showed a tape of "Pink Flamingos" to Pedro Almodovar and, after this, Pedro was shocked, and though "I want to make movies as badtasted as it is"... and I believed he has got it, with "Pepi, Luci, Bom..." Almodovar became to the Spanish King of Trash Cinema. As crazy and cool director as John Waters, but Almodovar has got an Oscar!!!
