The next director is my pick, and it's Oscar-winning Spanish director, Pedro Almodovar. When I was devouring all things film in high school in preparation for going to film school, I really began to dig deep into independent films, which weren't all that easy to find in Waukesha, WI in the 80's and 90's. (No Netflix yet!) One of the few directors I could find was Almodovar, and I became a big fan. Again, like Anderson, despite the fact that I was a fan, I still didn't see a lot of his films so I am really looking forward to chewing on this project.
