Jess Franco R.I.P.

If there ever was an event worthy of a blog post, it's the death of Jess Franco. His cheapo films were always thought of as trash except near the end. In the end he is recognized as one of cinema's most prolific badasses because he always did exactly what he wanted.
Actress Lina Romay was his movie muse and the love of his life. After she passed away just this past year, there wasn't much left for him to do. Of course the stubborn Franco decided to stick around for a little longer, and then bow out.
He had his share of detractors, including yours truly, but ultimately left a huge impression. Congrats Jesus, you outlasted the bastards. See you at the big Drive-In in the sky.
