Dirs. Michael Powell, Emeric Pressburger. 1947, 100 mins. New DCP restoration. With Deborah Kerr, David Farrar, Jean Simmons, Kathleen Byron. Dynamic British duo Powell and Pressburger, a.k.a. The Archers, were known for their bravura works of popular art, films of staggering beauty and intellect. But even among their many masterpieces, Black Narcissus stands tall. This tale of a group of missionary nuns setting up a convent in the Himalayas and descending into hysteria is a towering, visually ravishing film that features Oscar-winning Technicolor cinematography by the incomparable Jack Cardiff.
