Not Worth It
3 February 2006 | by See all my reviews

A group of us watched this profile of Almodovar hoping for some entertaining anecdotes, a little insight into a fascinating director, at the very least, some interesting documentary ideas being put forward for the discerning viewer. Unfortunately, all we got was cliché after cliché: this very limited TV production re-invents nothing when it comes to recycling the repetitive talking head film clip format and even manages to make Almodovar rather wearying to the ear (no mean feat). It comes as no surprise that this flat-footed effort to whip up enthusiasm for the talented Spanish director and his films won no awards, attended next to no international festivals, and was broadcast next to nowhere. When - oh when ! are we finally going to get an inspired portrait of Pedro?
