mrpeenee on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown


I’m mad at Netflix, or the universe, whichever is responsible. I’ve had Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown on our queue there for more than a year and it’s still not available. How can the greatest movie ever made not be released? It’s a travesty, I tell you, a travesty.

About mrpeenee

A former bon vivant and terror of a number of New Orleans bars in the mad, gay 1980s, I'm now quietly retired and widowed in San Francisco. I have a crooked nose due to an unfortunate Frisbee accident.

  1. I’m sure the Velvet Mafia or one of the Homo Cartels has bought up every copy and is using the shortage to bring the world to its knees, one gay at a time.


  2. Mr.Peenee, I was searching on an spanish website, and is true, the new remastered version of the movie hasn’t come out yet. And it doesn’t have english subtitles. So I assume netflix is waiting for that version and also they’ll have to wait until they put subtitles.In the meantime, I tried to search and there are some dvds available on ebay and amazon. Probably your best bet is to buy it. Or to prepare a delicious “Gazpacho a la carmen maura” to those at netflix…. 😛


  3. My plan was to sneak over to Netflix’s house and throw their phone out the window, but I got distracted.I should mention I saw Volver and was enchanted all over again by Carmen Maura. She’s genius and still looks as fabulous as she did twenty years ago.


  4. Oh I have to agree. I absolutely LOVE her. I must recommend two other movies with her, “WHat have I done to deserve this” By Almodovar and “La comunidad” by Alex de la Iglesia (which i think I recommended to you before). I have the dvd of the first one, so I can send it to you if Netflix doesnt have it. 🙂


  5. You can buy ALL of Almodovar’s films in Oz, as singles and some even as box sets. Even the really old ones from the start of his career like “Pepi, Lucy y Bom”, “Dark Habits” etc.Don’t hate me.
