The Film Comment Podcast: Pedro Almodóvar and Pain and Glory
One of the highlights of the fall, and this year’s New York Film Festival, is the new film by Pedro Almodóvar, Pain and Glory. Our new September-October issue features an essay by Michael Koresky about the film and its fearless autobiographical story. Koresky writes, “There has been no clearer onscreen representation of the filmmaker’s essence than the main character of Pain and Glory, played with exquisite middle-aged restraint by Almodóvar’s longtime muse, Antonio Banderas.” To discuss the director, his new film, and his beloved career, Film Comment Editor-in-Chief Nicolas Rapold sat with Koresky and Film at Lincoln Center’s Eugene Hernandez. Also: pick up the new issue of Film Comment to read Koresky’s essay as well as an article by Almodóvar himself about the literary inspirations behind his cinematic achievements.
