Blood of a Poet
Dir. Jean Cocteau (1930). Cocteau made his debut in the cinema with this wholly original avant-garde study of the joys and agonies of being an artist, overflowing with visual symbolism and abstract effects. It was defined by him as "a realistic documentary of unreal events." It had a considerable influence on the American avant-garde.
