January 18 at 7 p.m.: Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown (1988, 90 min.)
 
"In Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown, Mr. Almodóvar sets out to charm rather than shock. That he succeeds should not come as a surprise. The common denominator of all Almodóvar films, even the one that winds up in an ecstatic murder-suicide pact, is their good humor." — Vincent Canby, New York Times
