With his latest film Julieta hitting cinema screens at the end of August, and with Curzon Bloomsbury at the beginnings of their Almodóvar retrospective, this week on the Curzon Film Podcast we focus on the Spanish melodrama master. Winner of multiple Academy awards, Almodóvar has brought out astonishing performances by Antonio Banderas and Penelope Cruz; in this episode Sam and Dani discuss his best work, his most controversial, and his role in modern cinema.
