Where this is
14 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you're looking for this, its on the Criterion DVD of 'Blood of A Poet' as a special feature.

With this film, Cocteau helps the viewer not only get into his head but all the artistic pioneers who were his peers in the first decades of the 20th century. Cocteau, especially in this, seems to have quite a lot of respect for the viewer in some way--he makes you care about his life, not only because he was always surrounded by inspired art, but also because he always seems to be imparting something more than what he's saying.

The camera work is interesting as well, as one might expect with a Cocteau related film.
