"Titch, it's always a capital error to ascribe views to someone you don't know. As it happens 'Citizen Kane' is one of my Desert Island movies and I like a lot of the Ealing Comedies. At age 69 pre-1970 cinema is the cinema I grew up with. However I decided to give 'Black Narcissus' another try. I borrowed a DVD that included the commentary by both Michael Powel and Martin Scorses. Both fascinating and illuminating but they don't change my view of the film which I found even sillier rthe second around than I did at the first viewing
. For the record I've never liked 'The Red Shoes' but I do like 'The life and Death of Colonel Blimp' and 'Peeping Tom'. I can't comment on the other films as I I haven't seen them. As ever, too many films, too little time."
