    Oh man. What a badass! I always wondered how he made films, wrote poetry, drew/painted, etc. – all with expert hands. And now I know. :P

    The composition of this is so great … it’s simultaneously tongue-in-cheek and genius.

    Ha, I have to save this image.


    Cocteau was at once and the same time a naif and a canny trickster. His brilliance still resonates.
