Critic Reviews for Pain and Glory (Dolor y gloria)
While still embracing the visual facades that make his films such a pleasure to watch, Pain and Glory finds him stripping away the emotional facades, bringing us closer to him than ever before.
Almodóvar shows us that, even after nearly two dozen features over several decades, he can still hold an audience in his hand - and surprise it.
A masterful, melancholy, tender, lacerating self-examination, filled with colour and light and the ghosts of those he has loved. Almodovar at 70, and perhaps astonishing to himself, continues to grow.
Antonio Banderas gives his best, most committed performance in years as a film director looking back over his life in "Pain and Glory," a typically rich, layered film from director Pedro Almodóvar.
There's plenty of artfulness on display in the intertwining of life and what gets made of it, but also a fair helping of artifice. Art imitating life, but also improving it a bit.
