The Eternal Joe

I was asked by The Chiseler for a “stream of consciousness obituary” of Jose Mojica Marins, AKA Coffin Joe, and THIS emerged. I can’t help it if my stream is more like a polluted rivulet.

Film Directors With Their Shirts Off, again:


José Mojica Marins. From the small amount of “Coffin Joe” cinema I’ve seen, he seems like a fascinating bastard. I was so disappointed to hear from a Brazilian film student that nobody over there takes him seriously. A prophet without honour, etc… but dig that physique!

(Have no idea what’s going on in this frame grab. The movie is ESTUPRO, also known as PERVERSION.)
