FP091: “Without discipline we should all behave like children.”


A production of The Archers, aka Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger, "Black Narcissus" is great for only the spectacular Technicolor cinematography. But wait, there's more! A brooding dark storyline, roiling in repressed sexuality and longing also makes it a fun time for all. Top that off with that fact that not one frame was shot on location—that all was made in and around a studio in the UK—and it remains as one of the true cinematic "creations" of the Twentieth Century.
