An Image



If ever there was a film director that has created endless, unforgettable, surreal images in cinema it's Jean Cocteau. Take for example his film Orphee loosely based on the story of Orpheus, an incredibly strange journey into a dark, twisted world created by Cocteau. I wasn't too sure what was happening half the time but the images and story structure here are remarkably done, so's the crisp black and white cinematography. Not a movie for all tastes but a real treat for cinephiles.
