Watched for the Cult Movie Challenge 2018
Week 30 - Psychotronic Encyclopedia Week
Quite possibly one of the most beautiful movies I've ever seen, Cocteau's version of the classic tale must have been at least partially an inspiration for the Disney version, what with the human-armed candelabras and other magical elements. I had forgotten the aspect of the story about Belle going home and the Beast falling ill because of it. Cocteau is a wizard with filmmaking, and is a true beneficiary of Melies's magic. After seeing only two films, I think he's become one of my favourite directors.
