Paul Julian Smith assesses Pedro Almodóvar's twentieth feature, Julieta, released in Spain to widespread press controversy and relative audience indifference, alongside three other recently released Spanish films that are making waves in Spain and elsewhere: the big-budget historical romance Palmeras en la nieve (Palm Trees in the Snow, Fernando González Molina, 2015), La novia (The Bride, Paula Ortiz, 2016), and Nuestros amantes (Our Lovers, Miguel Ángel Lamata, 2016).
