You adore Pedro Almodóvar’s knack for absurdist smut-wrangling. His approach to film is just more exotic, primal — like a drag-queen cheetah hyped on uppers. He’s got a new one, the enthusiastically titled I’m So Excited! and reviews have fluctuated between gazpacho cold and fiery dominatrix hot. You’re still going to see this, of course you are. The least thrilling Almodóvar flick is still the best thing you’ll watch this week. Do yourself a solid and catch it at the Modern (3200 Darnell St., Fort Worth) through Sunday. That way, you can take in the new collection acquisitions, have a bite in the cafe, then plunge deep into Pedro’s weird take on airline travel. (On this flight, nuts are provided.) It’s the perfect day. Choose either a 6 or 8 p.m. screening. Tickets range $6.50 to $8.50 with half-price admission for Sunday’s noon screening. Visit themodern.org.
