Holy shit, Kōji Wakamatsu died

He got hit by a taxi three days ago. Cripes.

Wakamatsu started directing in the early 1960s, primarily making highly artistic and complex exploitation films. His 1969 feature Go, Go Second Time Virgin has long been a favorite of mine:

Very sorry to hear about this.
