Despite its flaws, the film remains a fascinating souvenir of a vanished avant-garde.
On the face of it, this film represents six reels of scraped together footage from off the cutting room floor. A more vague or hopeless mess could not have resulted.
The honesty and robustness of the images prevents the movie from lapsing into pretension or preciousness; it remains extremely interesting as a source of Cocteau's later work.
Even if this is only a reverie on the illogicality of the subconscious, it's still a triumph of the imagination and provides invaluable insights into Cocteau's artistic vision.
Cocteau approaches cinema as a parlor riddle, a hermaphroditic catalogue, the ultimate medium for the aesthete's search for the ineffable and the sublime
A haunting poem, as exciting today as it was in 1930.
Cocteau's film contains unforgettable moments of cinematic poetry in its purest form.
Although it may seem as pretentious as the Surrealists claimed back in the 1930's, this represents one of the most sincere efforts to capture the creative process on film
It is surreal and uninhibited in its handling of visual imagery.
The imagery used here is still stunning despite its low-tech nature.
There has never been a film quite like Le Sang d'un Poete.
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.
This dialog-free film, originally presented as 33 short films, is an experimental, bizarre set of meditations and flashbacks of the grotesque
Words can't describe this masterpiece
Totally surreal, but brilliant.
