Movie Reviews

New Yorker - 10/10 by Michael Sragow This is a landmark of Hollywood-on-Thames trompe-l'oeil.
Slant Magazine - 10/10 by Joseph Jon Lanthier Michael Powell was right when he called Black Narcissus an "erotic film," but the attraction is pure Pygmalionism.
Chicago Reader - 10/10 by Dave Kehr Powell's equally extravagant visual style transforms it into a landscape of the mind -- grand and terrible in its thorough abstraction.
Guardian - 10/10 by Peter Bradshaw Run, don't walk to see this 1947 classic from Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger.
Filmcritic.com - 9/10 by Christopher Null The cinematography of Narcissus -- notably an ending that must have stuck in Hitchcock's mind for decades -- is to die for, utterly pioneering for its time and deserving of its two Academy Awards), but its story has never totally grabbed me.
Movie Metropolis - 8/10 by Christopher Long Colonial hubris nunsploitation = an unforgettable movie.
Juicy Cerebellum - 8/10 by Alex Sandell Beautiful technicolor film, with a slow-moving, but intriguing plot.
Time Out - 7/10 by Dave Calhoun Theatre this Michael Powell film most certainly is, as stressed by the gothic melodrama of the story and the acting, the studio setting with its beautiful backdrops and vivid colours and the most deliberate of characters and events.
EmanuelLevy.Com - 7/10 by Emanuel Levy In a breakthrough role as the new nun, Deborah Kerr heads a superb cast, including Flora Robson and Jean Simmons, in one of the most stunning color films ever made, deservedly winning the Oscars for cinematography and art design.
Spirituality and Practice - 6/10 by Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat A 1947 English film classic about the challenges of desire faced by some nuns in a new mission in the Himalayas.
User Review - 10/10 by Reece H The Archers bring it with an amazingly well shot film with vivid color and set design about a group of nuns challenged while in the Himalayas. Deborah Kerr is the uptight nun who clings to her strict beliefs while the other nuns face temptation of sorts. A classic. Michael Powell was one of the greats
User Review - 10/10 by Jim P Powell and Pressburger made Technicolor a whole new art form of their own...INCREDIBLY beautiful.
