Black Narcissus (Criterion Collection) (1947)
Not Rated
  This extraordinary film has it all: a sensual story of nuns in isolation struggling with their womanhood and under siege from within and without, breathtaking cinematography, incredible production and effects. Byron's Sister Ruth is a scene-stealer.
Contraband (1940)
  A rather lightweight and whimsical espionage thriller and a follow-up to The Spy in Black once again pairs the charming Veidt and Hobson. It's nevertheless an atmospheric and stylish film.
Edge of the World (1937)
Not Rated
  A visually stunning film which pits man against nature, and yields some extraordinary moments, of daring, and of how the dwindling population of the Scottish isle of Faura struggle to maintain their generational continuity in an ever changing world.
I Know Where I'm Going! (Criterion Collection) (1945)
Not Rated
  Powell and Pressburger's most lyrically poetic film is an enchanting tale about love and fate and set on a Scottish isle. Hiller's willful Joan and Livesy's forward-looking Laird are simply wonderful. It has more than a whif of the supernatural about it.
The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp (Criterion Collection) (1943)
Not Rated
  This lampoon of the British military enraged Churchill but delighted audiences with its wit and intelligence. Livesey is marvelous as the oblivious Blimp and Walbrook grabs our attention in every scene. The film is a delight from start to finish.
Peeping Tom (Criterion Collection) (1960)
Not Rated
  A provocative and entirely unexpected film by Powell, who came under violent attack by the UK critics in 1960 (the same year Hitchcock's Psycho hit the screen) and all but ended his career; it's nonetheless a compelling and disturbing film.
The Red Shoes (Criterion Collection) (1948)
Not Rated
  One of the great music films, and arguably Powell and Pressburger's best film; The Red Shoes is filled with wonderful characters, locations, and colorful backstage goings-on. Walbrook's Diaghelev-like impersonation is exceptional.
The Tales of Hoffmann (Criterion Collection) (1951)
  comments coming soon...
The Thief of Bagdad (1940)
Not Rated
