Who is Luc Moullet?

Why did I once drive over 500 miles to see one of his films in the mid 1970s? Why is he almost totally unknown in the US? What is the name of the film he made which is built around the image of French critics viewing Vittorio Cottafavi's HERCULES CONQUERS ATLANTIS? Why did I spend money rather foolishly earlier which I could have invested in this PAL tout le regions boxset? Why is this on a Jess Franco blog?

I'll try to answer these questions when I have more time. Until then, I hope this inspires some adventurous cinephiles reading this to research his work and actually attempting to view at least one of his films. Despite this 2006 Euro boxset, it won't be easy.
