The Films of Jean Rollin

I confess to never having heard of this director until recently. But his legacy certainly seems one of High Weirdness. A new documentary (first clip) chronicles his career.

His Wikipedia page.

Caution: Mild nudity in the clips.

I've long thought his work was the best of its kind! Admittedly, French surreal soft-core vampire porn isn't a genre with a lot of competition, but the fact he makes it work at all is an achievement.

My intro to him was The Nude Vampire. I knew I had to watch it as soon as I read that the title character is an orphan vampire with an aversion to clothes, and there are something like half a dozen more different attributes for her. I just had to see how many character tags someone could hang onto a role and have it still work.

"Caution: mild nudity" makes my European mind boggle. Is there such a thing as "mild AR-15", and are we cautioned against it?

What's sold today is the mild version.

The original ArmaLite AR-15 was a fully-automatic assault rifle which, with slight modifications by Colt, was adopted as the M16.

Today's AR-15 is a semi-automatic sporting rifle with no military use.
