  1. Bonnet Michel's rating of the film A Song of Love

  2. Europudding's rating of the film A Song of Love

    This is more erotic than a lot of 70's gay porn.

  3. aurkihnowe's rating of the film A Song of Love

    Genet checklist: (auto)homoeroticism, artistic touches galore, perfidious double-minded prison guards...Jean's only foray into film (lensed by Cocteau) makes you wish he'd had done more in the medium....apparently he dissavowed this later in life, and i can't see why....all porn should be so emotionally gorgeous....

  4. Dan Kenneth Gigernes's rating of the film A Song of Love

    Silent short about two prisoner trapped for so long that they now need each other or they have already been in love and has been arrested for their love. You decide. Anyhow they are trapped and a creepy villainous cop peep on them. A dancing black man show off his manhood and puts his 'gun' into one of the prisoners. It was banned till it was shown in liberal Denmark in 1972.

  6. FISCHER's rating of the film A Song of Love

    Chaque image est forte d'une poésie et d'une sensualité rarement égalées depuis. www.cinefiches.com

  7. El Biffo's rating of the film A Song of Love

    The sexiest prison movie I have ever seen.

  8. Mitchell Glidden's rating of the film A Song of Love

    1/3 of Poison makes a lot more sense now.

  9. Laura Marina Boria's rating of the film A Song of Love

  10. mpho3's rating of the film A Song of Love

    like an offering from a sexy jean couteau universe

  11. Morris Bros.'s rating of the film A Song of Love

  12. Justin Kline's rating of the film A Song of Love

    Meh. Just as provocative as I'm sure it was in 1950, but nothing I would get up in arms about, demanding that it must be seen. Almost solely significant or worth a watch because it was directed by Genet himself.

  13. Brent Landon's rating of the film A Song of Love

  14. Rtab's rating of the film A Song of Love

    The film shows the incarceration and limitation of homosexuality by the society (the prison, in this case) and ironically it was banned for many years. A truly radical work, considering the time it was made in and one that was essential.

  15. dAlton Anthony's rating of the film A Song of Love

    Queer's everything but this is much more than queer cinema. This is the human condition in 26 minutes.

  16. photo_aurora's rating of the film A Song of Love

    It's hard to believe this film was made in the 1950's. Jean Genet captures eroticism, pain, homophobia, BDSM phantasy, oppression, lust and more in just 26 silent minutes. It made me think of some of Mapplethorpe's images and the uproar they caused in 1989. Definitely recommended, it deserves its status of ground breaking classic.

  18. caitlin.f's rating of the film A Song of Love

    well you definitely don't need sound to make a profound impact...

  19. Loz Loory's rating of the film A Song of Love

  20. SpacePirate's rating of the film A Song of Love

    Watched this while having my morning coffee. Was not expecting scenes of a dude stroking his boner while I enjoyed my sumatra, but nonetheless, an effective short here. The fact that this was released in 1950 is astounding. Feels like a short Kenneth Anger would've made years later. I was researching on IMDB a bit and it seems this was the only film he directed. A shame. Very forward thinking and inspired. 4.5 stars

  21. Landen Celano's rating of the film A Song of Love

  22. VivianDarkbloom's rating of the film A Song of Love

    a portray of desire and art without audio or lines. This film must have been so controversial in the 50s.

  23. Ian Detlefsen's rating of the film A Song of Love

    Weird, visually rhythmic, and wonderful. And one of the few films I've ever seen with erect penises (that wasn't porn).

  24. Kevin's rating of the film A Song of Love

    Bresson knew John Cocteau and I think was related by marriage. Over a 1950 dinner Bresson talks about the Country Priest he will release in 1951. Cocteau suggests a midnight movie, a project he recently finished, and the rest is history, Bresson turns radically Calvinist, Cocteau continues on his path of debauchery. What the…
