    Pedro Almodóvar has never been more compelling. As a nation that has undergone some dark chapters in its history, Spain should suffice with endless ideas for dramas. So it struck me as a surprise to learn that Parallel Mothers is Almodovar’s jab at shedding light on the horrors of the Franco Regime.

    Chances are, if you’ve ever read a ‘Greatest Movies Ever’ list, Citizen Kane is on there. Directed by Orson Welles (in his first rodeo), the 1941 drama was so groundbreaking that it still has critics and cinephiles discussing it to this day. Thanks to its character’s story, its stunning cinematography and more, the film has maintained its strong legacy, which is, perhaps, just as legendary as the troubled history behind its making. Kane has undergone many controversies, primarily because of…
