520    One of world cinema's most exciting filmmakers, Pedro 
       Almodóvar has been delighting, provoking, arousing, 
       shocking, and-above all-entertaining audiences around the 
       globe since he first burst on the international film scene
       in the early 1980s. All about Almodóvar offers new 
       perspectives on the filmmaker's artistic vision and 
       cinematic preoccupations, influences, and techniques. 
       Through overviews of his oeuvre and in-depth analyses of 
       specific films, the essays here explore a diverse range of
       subjects: Almodóvar's nuanced use of television and music 
       in his films; his reworkings of traditional film genres 
       such as comedy, horror, and film noir; his penchant for 
       melodrama and its relationship to melancholy, violence, 
       and coincidence; his intricate questioning of sexual and 
       national identities; and his increasingly sophisticated 
       inquiries into visuality and its limits.  Closing with 
       Almodóvar's own diary account of the making of Volver and 
       featuring never-before-seen photographs from El Deseo 
       production studio, All about Almodóvar both reflects and 
       illuminates its subject's dazzling 
       eclecticism.Contributors: Mark Allinson, U of Leicester;
