Pedro Almodovar Selects 'The Killers,' 'Nightmare Alley' to Screen at AFI Fest
The director also will attend a 25th anniversary screening of his own "Law of Desire" along with the movie's star Antonio Banderas.
Jean-Pierre Melville’s crime tale Le Cercle Rouge and Edmund Goulding’s circus-set film noir Nightmare Alley are among the films that Pedro Almodovar has selected to screen at AFI Fest, which runs from Nov. 3-10 in Hollywood.
The Spanish director, who is serving as the festival’s guest artistic director, will attend the festival Nov. 7 for a 25th anniversary screening of his own film The Law of Desire, at which he’ll be joined by the movie’s star Antonio Banderas, who also stars in Almodar’s current film The Skin I Live In.
Almodovar’s film selections are heavy on horror films and crime thrillers: In addition to Le Cercle Rouge and Nightmare Alley, he has chosen Georges Franju’s Eyes Wihout a Face, in which Pierre Brasseur plays a mad doctor, and Robert Siodmak’s The Killers, an adaptation of an Ernest Hemingway short story starring Burt Lancaster and Ava Gardner.
