    Stephen Thrower deserves a medal for all the years of extensive and headache inducing research that went into producing these two volumes of writings on the films of cult director Jess Franco Not only has Thrower tracked down just about every single one of Franco's near 200 feature films he's also managed to find a lot of the many alternative language cuts of the films a practice in which Franco was infamous for assembling and reassembling his films for different markets and has written extensively about the production of the films and the reactions they received upon releaseIt's a shame that Jess Franco's films are still thought of as being too 'niche' or snobbishly looked down upon as pornographic trash even today by people that think being a 'film buff' means having a weekly Cineworld pass as I think many of Franco's higher quality works and even some of his poorer quality ones deserve attention But I guess his work is never going to be to a lot people's tastes But I like to share the often used example that Franco approached cinema in the same way that a jazz musician might approach an improvised solo on the alto sax He often had a very free form approach to film making and whilst his unconventional methods didn't always make a lot of sense to viewers he often managed to create a strange and dreamlike atmosphere on screen And that is why he was a truly individual and distinctive film maker and Stephen Thrower's two books on him will hopefully enlighten a few into seeing Franco's importance in film history
