Un Ataque de Nervios

Shiite terrorists. Mad women shooting handguns in airports. Love gone awry. A 28-year old Antonio Banderas. And, claro, lots of gazpacho.

I haven't seen Almodovar's Women on the Verge of A Nervous Breakdown in almost 20 years. It's so well done, and so very funny. Homages everywhere. A little Rear Window, a little Strangers on a Train, a chord or two of Johnny Guitar.

And, oh yes, some more gazpacho.

Between this and Volver, Carmen Maura is one of my new heroes.

Meanwhile, my Toronto boys should have been home hours ago. They were on a 12.5-hour bus tour of Windsor, Stonehenge and Bath that should have returned to Victoria 3 hours ago. I'm almost beginning to get worried. Hopefully they decided to go out drinking to wash away the pain of a day on a tour bus, and aren't stuck in traffic somewhere.
