Murderous Passions - The Delerious Cinema of Jesus Franco Hardback
Spanish filmmaker Jesus Franco (aka Jess Franco) directed more than 180 films in a career spanning six decades, making him one of the most prolific directors of all time and winner of a Lifetime Achievement prize at the 2009 Spanish Goya Film Awards.
Yet his work frequently met with censorship resistance & was often despised by critics.
Franco's taste for the sexy and horrific, his lifelong obsession with the Marquis De Sade and his roving hand-held camera style birthed a whole new strain of outlandish sado-erotica.
This looks at the first half of his career.
