Oh, THANK GOD. The colors! The costumes. Those faces. Watch 45 seconds of Almodóvar's overdue return to funny, I'm So Excited, coming in 2013. Naturally, the bright comedy springs from dire circumstances as airline passengers and crew on a troubled flight from Spain to to Mexico City share candid confessions – and musical interludes –to ward off fears of imminent death.
For the obligatory real-life WTF moment, Almodóvar says he tried and failed to get the rights to The Silence of the Lambs, The Hours, The Human Stain, The Reader, and The Paperboy, for his English language debut. Aren't you glad he didn't? Look at Wong Kar-wai.
