EL OJETE DE LULU wins the Academy Award!
El Ojete de Lulu
Added: March 19, 2007
It’s ACADEMY AWARDS day for night in Hollywood today. I’m not as “into” it as I used to be. But Jess Franco finally found an appropriate use for the “golden” statuette [Below] in this “analogical” mid 1980s hardcore satire. UNA RAJITA PARA DOS was even more scatological.
Let’s face it, Jess Franco was a commercial director who handled all genres and went hardcore to keep working, please producers and sell his product. But he was also a sharp genre, and self-satirist.
EL OJETE DE LULU is not a film I revisit, but I did get a laugh at Oscar’s expense, as did Jess.
