Blood of a Poet


France 1930, 53 minutes, B/W
Dir. Jean Cocteau
In French with English subtitles
Genres: Foreign Cinema, Drama, Classics / Arts & Artists

Topics: Mind-bender.


Aroview: Cocteau's first film is a surrealist gem that sewed the seeds of his style. The Dali/Bunuel influence is clear, but this goes one step further with its non-narrative delineation of the agony and ecstasy of being an artist.
