The films of Jean Rollin are a feast of perverse and exotic imagery shot in the soft-focus style of a David Hamilton photo essay and paced as languidly as a Terence Malick film…but with sudden eruptions of grand quignol gore worthy of Herschell Gordon Lewis and lots of beautiful and bloody nude bodies. viaSure. That's one way of putting it. I always thought Jean Rollin films were just low-budget ways to showcase a lot of blood and fine European boobies, but poetic language makes them sound all classy and shit.
Here's a documentary from British television (Eurotika on Channel 4, I believe) about the many booby-filled films of the great French horror and exploitation director Jean Rollin.
I can't believe how much nudity they show on British TV.
