Somerset House Summer Series Pedro Almodóvar © Lucy EvansThe Film4 Summer Screen programme kicked off last night with a screening of Pedro Almodóvar’s ‘The Skin I Live In’ (below) with a surprise appearance from the director himself (above). Almodóvar took to the stage with his leading lady Elena Anaya to introduce his bizarre, transgressive psychological horror movie, reading excerpts from British reviews of the film and telling audiences, ‘If you can’t speak for five, ten, fifteen minutes after the movie, that means you liked it!’. The programme continues this weekend with screenings of ‘The Big Blue’, ‘The Apartment’ and a terrific double bill of ‘Die Hard’ and Attack the Block’.
