Episode 14: Talk to Her (2002)

With Talk to Her, the guys have their first true test of reconciling meaning and beauty, as Pedro Almodóvar places hefty concepts of one-way love, longing, and whether our sentience is what makes us truly human into the heart of the film that leave the viewer asking just what they are supposed to take away from it. Whether there is a true takeway or not might not even be the right question, as Talk to Her is a thoroughly beautiful film that sees Almodóvar at his peak as a visual storyteller. He is able to tell the stories of Benigno, Alicia, Marco, and Lydia through the images on the screen, as this world in particular is one where language just doesn’t quite cut it. They also discuss what they might want said to them if they were in a coma, as well as what else they have been watching this week.
