In an Almodóvar World

Oh Antonio Banderas... So pretty, so much love to give, such a borderline personality. Not that I'd mind if he tied me up, held my family at gunpoint and forced me to love him. Should take about 3.5 seconds of convincing.

Simply put: Antonio is crazy/hot.

Antonio's (oft-seen) stalker side seems brought out most by people in the entertainment field: a queer film director in Law of Desire (mi favorito), a young model in Matador, and a porn star in Tie Me Up! Tie Me Down! An amateur film blogger seems like the next logical step really.

Over at Film Experience I've done a post playing Six Degrees of Pedro Almodóvar! So many lovely little links between his films, one of which is attempted rapist/accomplished murderer Antonio Banderas somehow still being the ideal man. Viva Pedro!

Here's one degree of Pedro Almodóvar: Pedro as a cashier in Law of Desire. I wish Pedro worked at my local hardware store! And I wish Antonio frequented my local hardware store! Bar none, best local hardware store ever.

Adam, you know I love you more than my own luggage, but you'd better keep your paws off Antonio. I saw him first, he's mine! MINE!

Excuse me, I got a bit carried away.

I know I passed a law at Club Silencio that people need desire Antonio Banderas, but I'm not sure I'm comfortable with this affection being shared. Antonio's obsessive stalking takes extreme devotion and time and (arousing) physical abuse. Sorry, Pax. You may be the best visitor this site has, but you're just going to have to move on. Antonio has.

I'll see you later ... oh, do you still have that bunny in the yard, and that large stew pot in the kitchen?

I meant move on from Antonio, not this site. If you don't read it and comment, no one will!

I'll let you have Antonio on holidays.
