    As Monty Python once said, “And now for something completely different. The wild and woolly world of José Mojica Marins AKA Coffin Joe is a provocative change of pace for the uninitiated. There’s an abundance of horror treasures in Marins’ coffin and a few art house thought-provokers as well. This one reminds me of the work of Fernando Arrabal and some early Alejandro Jodorowsky. A surreal black comedy that pokes fun at the messiah complex and may have influenced Python’s own ‘Life of Brian’.

    Coffin Joe, one of the best movie makers from Brazil, a self-taught genius, who learned about cinema watching and making it.
    I love Coffin Joe, having many of his movies on official DVDs, and have read his wonderful biography, “Maldito”.
    Rest in Peace, José Mojica Marins!
