Looking at Almodóvar

Mon, 2013-06-03 13:07 -- sfinn

Dr. Leora Lev (foreign languages) has contributed an essay, "Our Rapists, Ourselves: Women and the Staging of Rape in the Cinema of Pedro Almodóvar," to the recently published Companion to Pedro Almdovar. Dr. Lev’s chapter suggests that Almodóvar's cinematic reflections on rape offer a more nuanced, troubling, and necessary analysis that complicates – even when it's also clearly grappling with – understandings of rape both within Spain and beyond in ways that resist reductive categorizations.
