Recent eBay acquisition from the maestro... equal parts beautiful & dramatic
Nice grab!! I tried to watch the movie, the actress is incredibly beautiful, cinematography was good, but it was a real mess!
Yeah, Franco films are an acquired taste to say the least. I have recently tried to get into those a little more, am reading Steven Thrower‘s first book on him which I think is pretty excellent (as are all his books). Haven‘t seen Justine but some of the films I have seen I would pretty much also file under „a mess“.
In any case the scores in Franco‘s movies are usually really good (e.g. Vampyros Lesbos, She killed in ecstasy - quite liked those films as well), he wanted to become a musician before he took the filmmaker route and apparently was a big jazz aficionado.
And yes, Justine is a great score - congrats @Spun. Have also been looking for a nice copy for a decent price for quite some time.
