Le sang d'un poète

Jean Cocteau France, 1932

the_mentaculus's rating of the film The Blood of a Poet

Cocteau's imagery has a curious logic and urgency, more so than other avant-garde works. I always have a feeling of initiation. The Nine Muses reincarnate; Erato with her piercing intuition, and Polymnia with lyrical form.
