“Black Narcissus is about the convulsive effect of life on closed minds, a drama of fugitive glances and grimaces and fixations, of gusts of wind and swaths of color and light, advancing in vivid and at times hair-raisingly precise emotional increments, each one as richly abundant and visually satisfying as the last. Like all of the Archers’ best films, Black Narcissus is an enchant­ment, an immersion in the sheer pleasure of artifice and the play of creation.”
