Stuart Levine has praise for 'Volver,' Penelope Cruz

Posted By on Tue, Oct 31, 2006 at 7:24 AM

His latest and one of his best movies, “Volver,” is a great starting point for anyone unfamiliar with Almodovar’s immense body of work. If foreign-language titles scare you away, be not afraid. Almodovar’s films are similar to reading a great book, both tragic and funny at the same time, yet with colorful and vibrant pictures to accompany the text.

And what beautiful pictures they are. “Volver” stars Penelope Cruz, one of Almodovar’s stable of Spanish actresses he uses on a rotating basis (more on that later). The film captures both Cruz’s sculptured beauty and her movie-star qualities. There may not be a more gorgeous woman on the planet than Cruz, and her performance here is certainly Oscar worthy.

Here's the fully story.

    It's the slowest for movies. "Watchmen," the much anticipated film adapted from, arguably, the greatest graphic novel of all time, has stirred the emotions of critics.
