Images that get stuck in your head and stay there: an artist draws a mouth that moves on its own; a man walks through a mirror; a snowball fight turns deadly; a woman transforms into a statue. This early-sound masterpiece and film debut from essential 20th-century artist/poet Jean Cocteau is a benchmark of cinematic surrealism, presented here in a new 4K restoration.
