Law of Desire
Directed by: Pedro Almodovar
Opens Monday, December 9
Post-film discussion with Carmelita Tropicana!
Sex. Desire. Obsession. While those are all givens in an Almodóvar movie, Law of Desire is a special kind of absurdist romance that made Pauline Kael write, “Almodóvar’s tone is not like anyone else’s… It doesn’t disguise its narcissism; it turns it into bright-colored tragicomedy.” Porn director Pablo has a steamy one-night stand with a young fan, Antonio (Antonio Banderas). But while Pablo is still in-love with his ex, Antonio falls into an obsession. Meanwhile, his transsexual sister, Tina (Carmen Maura), struggles with her own misogyny. Join us for what’s sure to be a festive, glamorous evening, presented by performance artist and downtown legend, Carmelita Tropicana!NC-17, 102 Minutes
