about 2 hours ago With the upcoming screenings of Twentieth Century Women, we’re thinking about female ensemble movies. They may have become a hot Hollywood trend in recent years – with Bridesmaids and Ghostbusters as some of the most interesting examples – but for us the all-time classic has to be Powell and Pressburger’s Black Narcissus (1947). The story of a group of nuns in a Himalayan convent, it’s weird, spine-tingling and utterly beautiful. Check out these swooning reviews of the rerelease below... Have you seen it? Tell us what you think!
