    For me, nothing supersedes Jean Cocteau’s LA BELLE ET LA BETE; and given my particular ‘pet’ sensibilities no other version probably ever will. This, however, is quite extraordinary in its invention and its own right. Thank you very much, Jon for posting something I’d long heard about but was never able to see.
