Tie me up! Tie me down! / ¡Atame!


Some Pedro Almodóvar fans felt betrayed when the Iberian director hit the international bigtime with Mujeres en el borde de un ataque de nervios (Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown) in 1988. The Royal theater in West L.A. had a special showing with several of the Spanish cast in attendance; and the movie, a romantic farce that played like a Doris Day movie on LSD, earned a delightful best Foreign Film Oscar nomination for an extremely talented guíon.

Soon thereafter, another art theater announced a festival of Almodóvar movies, with interesting-sounding titles like Matador and What Have I Done to Deserve This?, and Savant guesses that many fans wrongly assumed they were going to be more of the same ... only to find out that they had all kinds of extreme content - gore, bizarre sexual relationships, bright colors ... Mujeres was something of a departure for Almodóvar, as his earlier pictures had been a lot bolder with taboo subject material, often political in nature. For his immediate followup, the always-surprising director tried subject matter considered completely Politically Incorrect in the USA ... and received a perplexing NC-17 rating.
