Best Worst Direction

No one forgot RF. I started two Best Worst Direction threads and in the general everything one Raymond mentioned Franco specifically. Check that when you have a second.

RFSwitchArt. The portion of Raymond’s response discussing Jesus Franco.

"The Castle of Fu Manchu - Jesus Franco

Earlier entries in Fu Manchu, especially the first, were entertaining. There were good actors in these things. Part of the problem may just be the “Planet of the Apes” phenomenon of shrinking budgets. But the fact is, it’s clear Jesus just phoned this one in. It could be more entertaining. It’s just not."

Yup. Came here to say that but ya beat me to it.

True—James Nguyen’s direction invariably subtracts value, but few directors are as earnest about their craft.
