Jess Franco Films in Paris

The Cinemathèque Française in Paris is mounting a ambitious retrospective of Jess Franco tonight. The Franco retrospective (which consists of 68 films!) will run from today, June 18, through July 31.

Franco & Lina will be in attendance. It's cool to see Franco get his due. Whether you like or dislike his films you have to give Franco his due on his perseverance in filmmaking. If you want to see what films they are showing head on over to Robert Monell at his website I'm In a Jess Franco State of Mind.

That's pretty cool. I also hear most of the films will be shown in 35mm. It's probably the best venue to be seen in. Congrats Jess!
