The Lincoln Center Film Society’s NYFF arrived at its closing night with a premiere of Pedro Almodovar’s “Broken Embraces.”
The film stars one of Almodovar’s muses and rumored fiance of hotness Javier Bardem – Penelope Cruz, in a black a-symmetrical jacket and gray shimmery dress.
Much is said of Cruz’s beauty and its something that escapes me for the most part. But I must admit that she did have a certain shine to her last night on the short red carpet amidst the Lincoln Center revamped Alice Tully Hall complex. Must have something to do with the millions of $ that went into reworking the structure.
I would also venture to say that I was pleased to have had a stop and repeat with the likes of Cruz, Almodovar and Salma Hayek – who arrived so late to the event more than two/thirds of the press line had vacated – including myself, and this largely due to the inept minds handling the event who stated the event was done.
Of course, this wasn’t the publicity teams 1st event fuck up. It marked their 3rd screwed event – not that they appeared to give a rats ass about it, so it came as little a shock. Tres Incompetent!
The film opens in limited release on November 20th and wide release in December – no doubt in time for Oscar consideration…
