  • Critic Reviews of "Black Narcissus"

    New Yorker
    August 03, 2015

    This is a landmark of Hollywood-on-Thames trompe-l'oeil.

    Time Out
    January 01, 2013

    There's something truly unearthly about this place of howling winds, yawning chasms and atmosphere thick with temptation. Sanctity, it will be proven, is no match for sin.

    Chicago Reader
    March 23, 2010

    Powell's equally extravagant visual style transforms it into a landscape of the mind -- grand and terrible in its thorough abstraction.

    March 26, 2009

    Production has gained much through being in color. The production and camerawork atone for minor lapses in the story, Jack Cardiff's photography being outstanding.

    Time Out
    June 24, 2006

    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.

    New York Times
    May 20, 2003

    While Messrs. Powell and Pressburger may have a picture that will disturb and antagonize some, they also have in Black Narcissus an artistic accomplishment of no small proportions.

    Monthly Film Bulletin
    June 15, 2015

    The natural colour is beautiful; but, more, the rhythm of camera movement is recurrently used in combination with an overtinting of the whole scene, at significant dramatic moments, to produce an emphasis we have not seen before.

    The Archers at their most carnal-bonkers-sublime

    Slant Magazine
    December 30, 2012

    Michael Powell was right when he called Black Narcissus an "erotic film," but the attraction is pure Pygmalionism.

    Spirituality and Practice
    August 05, 2010

    A 1947 English film classic about the challenges of desire faced by some nuns in a new mission in the Himalayas.

    Colonial hubris nunsploitation = an unforgettable movie.

    March 23, 2010

    Run, don't walk to see this 1947 classic from Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger.
