Reviews

The Films of Jess Franco succeeds admirably in supporting the long overdue recognition of Franco as a cinematic (anti-) auteur whose career and work are worthy of in-depth analysis. [. . .] For the long-suffering Franco-phile, the publication of this book signals the vindication of a previously overlooked moviemaker worthy of serious study and unbridled celebration.--Michael Orlando Yaccarino "co-author of the biography Infinite Variety: The Life and Legend of the Marchesa Casati and articles Marquis Value: From Sade to Screen and Bloody Banquet on films by Jess Franco" (8/7/2018 12:00:00 AM)
The authors in The Films of Jess Franco, by the mere choice of Franco as a critical focus, exhibit a commitment to intensive research. The product of this research is an engaging look at a forgotten corner of exploitation cinema. . . . The book proves that Franco's oeuvre has been almost criminally ignored, his horrotica a deep well for an academic discussion of exploitation cinema's artistic merits.--Alex Brannan "Film International" (9/17/2018 12:00:00 AM)
