MATADOR

(1986, 35mm, 110m, Spanish with English subtitles) dir Pedro Almodóvar w/Assumpta Serna, Antonio Banderas, Nacho Martinez. This pitch-black comedy follows Ángel (Banderas), a bullfighting student so warped by Catholic guilt that he admits to murders he didn't commit; his female lawyer (Serna), who is aroused by violence; and Ángel’s ex-matador teacher (Martinez), who gets interposed between them. This gem is widely considered Almodóvar's first masterwork. FRI 7:00 SAT 9:15 SUN 3:00
