  1. Erik F.'s rating of the film Orpheus

  2. VincentVendetta's rating of the film Orpheus

    Jean Cocteau's Note sur la photographie - seriously, it's astounding how Cocteau predicts Barthes' work thirty years before it was published, right down to Eurydice who can only live through her last image lest she disappear from Orpheus's life. But cinema is more than photography, it has its own dream, its own wish, to turn back time on the atrocities of the past and to imagine a new, better world.

  3. Benjamin Reid's rating of the film Orpheus

    A dude obsessed with a car radio puts on rubber gloves to travel through a mirror. He eventually falls in love with his own death (who stalks him at night while he sleeps). Given its dreamy premise, it's no wonder why I adore this one. I love its simple effects like rear projection, reverse motion, and negative photography. It is also fun finding the seeds of inspiration for the Smiths, the Matrix, and Twin Peaks.

  4. Adora Dion's rating of the film Orpheus

    Mult mai delicat decât "Vivre sa vie"(-Godard). Un umor sensibil, dar tăios, redat subtil de nişte feţe împietrite. La mort est le plus grand poète.

  5. Alexander Dunkelberger's rating of the film Orpheus

    A generally good retelling of the myth of Orpheus. It’s no Black Orpheus though. Probably because the guy playing the titular character is so fucking annoying.

  6. Il secondo maestro del revolver's rating of the film Orpheus

  7. Emil Kurjak's rating of the film Orpheus

  8. the prince's rating of the film Orpheus

    a masterpiece of film-script and direction

  9. Razna_'s rating of the film Orpheus

    Death awaits in every mirror.

  10. Aardsy's rating of the film Orpheus

    Beware mobs of young poets.

  11. EdieEmm's rating of the film Orpheus

    Both wackier and more accessible than I'd expected. I got the sense that I'd have enjoyed this film as much when I was eight as I did now, and for many of the same reasons (albeit at different levels of sophistication). Satisfying across the broadest spectrum of my tastes. Looking forward to multiple viewings...

  12. elenagallen's rating of the film Orpheus

    But... they can't kill you. You are the one who kills.

  13. Bram Vroonland's rating of the film Orpheus

    Cocteau fuses literature, film and at times even performance art in this incredibly pretty movie. Whether you like the plot or not you have to recognize this as a marvel of its time. The lighting, mise-en-scene and use of cinematic tools is great without ever compromising the overall elegance.

  14. Olivier Mouchel's rating of the film Orpheus

    La légende d'Orphée et Eurydice adaptée avec une grande poésie. Magnifique !

  15. Tibulle85's rating of the film Orpheus

    Film étrange. Bourré de qualités (belle mise en scène, classique mais pas trop ; belle utilisation poétique des effets spéciaux; une relecture intéressante du mythe avec l'attrait d'Orphée pour la Mort), mais aussi de défauts (Jean Marais ne joue pas bien ; film très daté sur certains points ; méta-discours sur la poésie un peu lourdingue). On reste loin des meilleurs films français de la période (pour moi).

  16. Willyzacc's rating of the film Orpheus

    Premier Jean Cocteau, c'est beau, et pas si difficile à aborder.

  17. Arnaud Millan's rating of the film Orpheus

  18. sabbi irimiás esaú alzate botero's rating of the film Orpheus

    i need to rewatch this bc i was talking to boys on grindr while i played this........................... i don't think cocteau would have been mad at me for it though

  19. Philippe MK's rating of the film Orpheus

    - "le public vous aime" - c'est bien le seul" Voilà, tout est dit dans cet échange sublime. Si vous n'aimez pas les films poétiques et les univers oniriques, passez votre chemin. Sinon, plongez. Vous en reviendrez ébloui.

  20. Vincent Balcer's rating of the film Orpheus

    Intéressante réécriture d'une très belle matière de départ. L'Orphée proposé par Cocteau est grand mais aussi vil à bien des égard. Mais n'est-ce pas le propre du héros tragique que de susciter tout à la fois admiration et mépris?

  21. Bénédixte Sakkiou's rating of the film Orpheus

  22. Bonnet Michel's rating of the film Orpheus

    un classique que l'on nous propose à la TV chaque année !

  23. MERLIER's rating of the film Orpheus

    Tout est beau dans ce film intemporel.

  24. Ludovic72's rating of the film Orpheus

    Tout un art de la poésie et du symbolisme dans la mise en scène et les dialogues. Le jeu d'acteur de Jean Marais résiste moins bien au temps qui passe...
