I'm So Excited

What would you do if you knew the flight you were on might end in a fatal crash? Almodóvar’s campy, carbonated comedy suggests drugging the unwitting passengers, getting loaded on tequila, blowing a stranger, and 69ing in the cockpit–and if that’s not enough to distract you from your impending doom, there’s always the anal cavity-muled mescaline from the newlywed groom and his sleep-fucking bride! But first, witness the delightful, tarmac-bound cameos from Pedro besties Antonio Banderas and Penelope Cruz, whose subplot is the reason we’re in this mess to begin with. Melodrama mixes with total WTF-ery as a middle-aged dominatrix realizes she’s joined the Mile High Club with her would-be assassin thanks to a premonition from a psychic virgin, while flight attendants Joserra, Fajas and Ulloa–our flamboyant, ersatz Three Stooges–act as guides through this outrageous, jaunty riff on a tale of terror in the skies.

Dir. Pedro Almodóvar, 2013, DCP, 90 min.
