Desire Unlimited Summary


Desire Unlimited: Cinema of Pedro Almodovar by Paul Julian Smith

This text examines the work of Pedro Almodovar, the Spanish director whose nine features to date include the comedy, "Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown" (1988), the S & M melodrama, "Tie me up! Tie me down!" (1990) and the family romance, "High Heels" (1991). This study argues not only that Almodovar is a highly skilled manipulator of cinematic form, but also that his films raise important questions - of gender, nationality and sexuality - which demand a serious response from their audience. "Desire Unlimited" offers analyses derived from recent feminist, gay and postmodern theory.
