Orphée (Orpheus) Reviews

March 26, 2009
Jean Cocteau's scripting and directing give the film its proper key of unworldliness.
March 25, 2006
Somnambulistic symbolism may be art for art's sake. Maybe not. This writer finds it slightly tiresome.
February 11, 2006
Its tight cross-lacing of paranoid dreaming and poetic realism grips like a bondage corset.
January 1, 2000
Cocteau's film technique is as eccentrically sui generis as ever -- his apparent mistakes are often among his most expressive moments.
January 1, 2000
Seeing Orpheus today is like glimpsing a cinematic realm that has passed completely from the scene.
