So obscure I'd need night-vision goggles to find it

Georges Franju made a visionary film in the early seventies, based on a Zola novel called . A sort of sensual 'Diary of a Country Priest' (sans grace). Anybody seen it? It will probably find its way to dvd the day after I drop dead . . .

...called "La Faute de l'Abbe Mouret." The Sin (or fault) of Father Mouret. Extraordinarily earthy - predictably for Zola. With astonishing music from Jean Wiener, who used to compose for Bresson.

The last few years have seen the video releases of 4 of Franju's great works (feature films) from 1958-1963. I hope Thomas L'Imposteur (1965) and La Faute de L'Abbe Mouret (1970).
