For example the Spaniards do not mention Almodóvar’s alleged sexual orientation. The French claim he is “homosexual,” without offering a corroborative reference. And the Anglos call the director “openly gay,” although the only link they give in the entry is to a Time story of 2005 in which Almodóvar himself angrily rejects the label “gay director” and is rejected in turn by the gay rights organizations who say he “has never supported” them (Farouky 2005). My point here is not to call attention to the controversy over even basic facts, intractable as they may seem, but to suggest the difficulty in providing plausible narratives to define this matrix figure and his growing oeuvre.
