Almodovar's "I'm So Excited" Opens Tomorrow at the Loft

Posted By on Thu, Aug 1, 2013 at 1:30 PM

Once I saw All About My Mother, I was all in on Pedro Almodóvar, trying to see his movies here as they opened, even driving up to Scottsdale once to catch Volver when it took forever to get to Tucson. While I'll likely still get over to the Loft this week to see his new movie, I'm So Excited, a campy romp set on an airplane and, yes, it's named after the Pointer Sisters song, I would describe the trailer as confusing, but maybe that's the point.

The reviewers at Rotten Tomatoes could be described as conflicted (currently, the score sits at 49%, but that might also be a case of critics holding one of the favorite filmmakers to a higher standard), but, on the other hand, Grantland's great film critic Wesley Morris describes it as Almodóvar "off his meds" which doesn't sound bad at all. I'm so confused, people. I don't know if I'm quite emotionally prepared for Fruitvale Station, but maybe this will be too far in the other direction? Are we supposed to take mescaline before we see it? Is that part of the experience?

Anyhow, it opens tomorrow at the Loft and, somewhat strangely, at the Century Theaters at the Oro Valley Marketplace.
