NewHobbies1: Is there a Ross Douthat book you could read? Because you haven't gotten off the couch since I recommended Jean Cocteau's movies.

NoelVera1: Madhumati is considered atypical of Bimal Roy, being without an overt social agenda. Ruthless rapacious industry mogul isn't an overt social agenda? Clothed in some of the most gorgeous fabulist imagery this side of Jean Cocteau mind you.

NewHobbies1: Another Jean Cocteau film? Why not cook some kimchi en papillote instead?

melissamonetxxx: Love Indie Book Stores! We have so many great ones here in Santa Fe. From Op.Cit (my dog loves their cookies) to Jean Cocteau (where I buy my George RR Martin graphic novels) and quite a few in between, support your local book stores!

ExitGhost: I recently had the pleasure of watching The Human Voice, a monodrama by Jean Cocteau directed and adapted for film by Pedro Almodóvar. Although the film itself is a loose interpretation of the original, it's nothing short of spectacular. I highly recommend you watch if you can.

foreverantrim: hi, movie buffs, is Jean Cocteau's movie 'Orpheus' worth a watch?

foreverantrim: ah, I see, they are a trilogy, 'the Orphic trilogy' by Jean Cocteau - which one is on the beach and by sea?

bjg211: "Art is a marriage of the conscious and the unconscious." -Jean Cocteau

Stargazer_KEA: Jean Cocteau recorded in 1962 a message addressed to the youth living in the year 2000. A perilous and surreal exercise.

foreverantrim: Just finished watching Jean Cocteau's 1950 film 'Orpheus'. Really, really loved it tbh. Some of the reverse filming effects, like the gloves, the mirror, the underworld, were inspired. For the age. A French cinema classic. Highly recommend it.
