Let’s "Talk" about Life, Death, and Love
Retriever Weekly Staff Writer
Pedro Almodóvar’s "Talk to Her" (***1/2 out of four) is a graceful, lyrical and at times uncanny examination of the question of unrequited love, although only one of the characters sees it that way. It is sorrowful without ever becoming maudlin and humorous without losing its dramatic edge. Almodóvar wisely chose to forgo any pretentious, distracting techniques in filming this story, thus making it easily accessible for almost all viewers, despite some of its more disturbing elements. It is refreshing how quickly a film like this can absorb the moviegoer, so that all who seek out this film can be rewarded by its charming, highly original narrative.
If you couldn't already tell, this is a really good flick, which I enjoyed quite a lot. Look for it.
In other TRW news, fellow staff writer Amy Segreti has stirred up all kinds of attention with her latest piece, which I recommend to all, except those under 18, if you catch my drift. The reason for such sturm und drang? Why, because it got posted on FARK! Like most discussions over there, this comment thingee is also unsuitable for minors. Like that'll deter you, you little letch.
