Viva la France!

Tonight's Georges Franju double feature was a lot of fun - and I'm pleased to report that everyone survived a full evening of subtitles!

Eyes Without a Face is a classic horror film celebrating it's 40th anniversary this year (more commonly known in the states under its alternate, if more exploitative title: The Horror Chamber of Doctor Faustus).

Judex is at it's heart a superhero movie based on a silent French serial of the same name. I thought it was excellent. And the bit at the party with folks wearing bird masks is priceless. You can check it out here:

We hope you'll be able to join us for our next party on February 21st. We'll be deciding on the theme for that in the next few weeks.
