Audience Reviews for The Blood of a Poet

  • May 05, 2016
    Jean Cocteau's 1930 film "The Blood of a Poet" is a surrealist film split up into four parts, but what do these parts mean? It is an incredibly well-made film and has an almost dream like structure. People come and go as do objects and images.

    Cocteau is a revolutionary expressionist that does not belong to the surrealism movement as any Buñuel fan would claim. His purposes were merely artistic and his first masterful debut of the bizarre is a passionate tribute to the enigmatic. Dreamlike and seductive, <i>Le Sang d'un Poète</i> is a breathtaking journey into the realm of the type of mind we will never understand unless we take our lives towards another direction. 99/100

    This dialog-free film, originally presented as 33 short films, is an experimental, bizarre set of meditations and flashbacks of the grotesque
