Entry #155: The Blood of a Poet
I had an immediate fascination to Jean Cocteau’s 1936 (? Not sure on date) “Blood of a Poet” because of the crazy imagery involved.
It is a long film and I was forced to stop at various intersections to get food or water. Because of the nonsensical storyline and the rather strange dialog between characters, I’d be hard press to try to explain it except that it mimics the art process. It’s also scary.
But I keep going back to it!
I discovered that looking at snapshots of the film was slightly more interesting then watching the film because I was able to notice little oddities that were previously ignored.
Also, also—notice all the peculations in Spring 08 Fashion?
I adore the shoes! But I really should be thinking 19th century right now! We cut next week and I haven't made my pattern yet? BAH!
