What Have I Done to Deserve This?

Yesterday (well before my date) I watched Pedro Almodóvar's What Have I Done to Deserve This? (¿Qué He Hecho Yo para Merecer Esto!!). It stars Carmen Maura and a whole cast of other crazy people. This film, though not as widely known as Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown, is in a similar vein and deals with topics a bit more serious. It is similarly filled with drug-addicted and crazy people and is very, very funny though its humor is scathing and socially critical. I liked it a lot. I'm preparing for Almodóvar's Volver, which comes out this year and will hopefully find its way to Tallahassee at some point.
