Movie: Black Narcissus (1947)

On the invitation of a local potentate, a group of five Anglican nuns come to a valley above Darjeeling to establish a convent; for their purposes they are given use of an old mountaintop palace slash harem. Isolated, far from home, exposed to constant winds and distant views of the matte paintings "Naked Goddess" mountains, the sisters find themselves unraveling, perhaps, just a bit. Directed by Powell and Pressburger. While not as spicy and erotic now as it probably was in its day to young Catholics like Scorsese and Coppola, it is still a gorgeous and fine melodrama. Starring Deborah Kerr, the scorching gaze of Kathleen Byron, and unfortunately Jean Simmons among others in brownface. [more inside]
