Quote: Watching Black Narcissus, staring deeply into its luminously filtered, Oscar-winning Technicolor palette, I get the sense of filmmakers (and to some extent) an audience just bursting to get something out that recent history and the circumstances of their times had all but directly forbade.

The film is full of allusions, meaningful gazes, innuendos and subliminal suggestions that build and build over the course of an hour and a half, finally becoming too much to contain and culminating in one of the most memorable "snap and meltdown" sequences of its era.

Though the movie is probably most famous for its final sequence, from start to finish it's full of wonderful scenes, performances and most astonishingly, gorgeous cinematography that conjures up colors and images capable of burning themselves quickly into the mind's eye of anyone who views them in a highly receptive state of mind.

Quote: I had never seen Black Narcissus before this week and that sort of virginity is sacrilege. Lose it if you haven't. Watch this film.

Some people I know and have known could not throw it away for just anybody...there had to be the presence of that burning love first.

Luminously glowing hauntingly shimmering Technicolor at its golden age finest (*-*)

Quote: "Narcissism is the pursuit of gratification from vanity, or egotistic admiration of one's own attributes, that derive from arrogant pride. The term originated from the Greek mythology, where the young Narcissus fell in love with his own image reflected in a pool of water"
