Almodóvar on Demand6 Mar, 2012 By: Angelique Flores
This month Movies On Demand has added two films that may be of interest to my Burrito readers.
El Bulli: Cooking in Progress premiered March 1, ahead of its DVD release. This documentary is about renowned Spanish chef Ferran Adrià and his avant-garde restaurant El Bulli, located in Roses, Spain (two hours outside of Barcelona). For six months of the year, Adrià would close El Bulli and work with his culinary team to prepare the menu for the next season. The restaurant has since converted to El Bulli Foundation. So for those of us who missed visiting, this is a great peek into the working of this innovative eatery.
The doc becomes available on DVD ($29.95) March 27 from Alive Mind, distributed by Kino Lorber.
The other film available on Movies in Demand should be familiar to most if not all of you. Pedro Almodóvar’s The Skin I Live In is available March 6, the same day as the Blu-ray combo pack streets from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. The thriller stars Antonio Banderas and Elena Anaya. … Almodóvar. Banderas. Anaya. Need I say more? Yeah, it’s pretty amazing.
I can’t wait to see the bonus features on Sony Pictures’ Blu-ray/DVD combo pack ($45.99): a seven-part featurette “The Making of The Skin I Live In,” “An Evening with Director Pedro Almodóvar” Q&A and “On the Red Carpet: New York Premiere” featurette.
The two films are available on-demand through cable systems by In Demand.
