Ugh, I am so stupid! I can't believe that I forgot Pedro Almodovar's upcoming Broken Embraces in my 50 Anticipated Titles for 2009 list (50-26, 25-1). Considering I love Almodovar and Penelope Cruz even more when they're together, this would've been a synch to score a top ten placement - hell, I'd probably place it at #2! I can't think of anything other than a David Lynch movie of Laura Dern pulling funny/terrifying faces that could stop James Cameron's Avatar being #1.
Nevertheless, here's hoping Pedro and Pene's latest entanglement is every bit as good as their last (that would be Volver). I can't wait!
