Feliz A?o Nuevo, Compa?eros.

I'm wondering if anyone would like to catch the new Almod?var flik, Broken Embraces, at the Regent Square Theater with me. The schedule is not yet set, but I?m expecting there will be a mid-afternoon show on Sunday, Jan. 17.
I?m open to change the date another time/day is better for a majority of would-be filmgoers. E-mail with your alternate suggestions by Wed or Thursday, Jan. 13-14.
From Pittsburgh Filmmakers? website: www.pghfilmmakers.org
Tickets $8 ($6 students and seniors) I believe it's cash only.

Broken Embraces (Pedro Almod?var; Spain; 2009; 127 min) With subtitles.
For his 17th feature film, Pedro Almod?var again places his muse, Penelope Cruz, at the heart of the story. The maestro brings his signature visual brilliance to his newest tale of deception, jealousy and betrayal. The labyrinthine plot begins with Harry Caine (Lluis Homar, Bad Education) a blind screenwriter and former movie director whose real name ? which he dropped after losing his sight in a car crash ? is Mateo Blanco. We then journey between the past and present, learning stories from differing viewpoints. While there are references to previous Almod?var films, cinematic homages abound including Kiss of Death, Voyage to Italy, The Third Man and of course, the original Kane. A superb soundtrack by Alberto Iglesias features tracks by Uffie and Cat Power.
