Joëlle Coeur in Robbe-Grillet's Playing With Fire (1975)



I have just posted a fairly lengthy post over at Moon in the Gutter on Alain Robbe-Grillet's startling 1975 production Playing With Fire. Jean Rollin fans will want to take note of the film as our lovely Joëlle Coeur appears briefly in the film. Joëlle shot this film shortly after making Les démoniaques with Jean and here are a few stills I captured for fans here. Enjoy!

The Night of the Hunted at Breakfast in the Ruins

Ben over at the always great Breakfast in the Ruins has a very nice piece up on The Night of the Hunted that I wanted to direct everyone here to. I am always especially happy to find pieces on this particular Rollin title and Ben's article is really well-done. Here is the direct link for those interested. Also, for those who might have missed them, here is a link to all of Ben's looks at the films of Jean Rollin.

Jean Rollin: Memories and Music at Cinezilla


Jason over at the essential Cinezilla has just posted a wonderfully detailed account of visiting Jean Rollin's final resting place that I wanted to invite everyone reading here to visit. It is a haunting and moving account of a pilgrimage I hope to someday make as well.
Also, Jason has created an incredible Rollin Mix-Tape that he is sharing with us that is a real dream. Here is a link to the post and thanks to Jason for all the hard work he put into the mix and for sharing his incredible story!
