Is it the wind that's been causing all the troubles?

I can't stopping looking at myself in this dark, black water. Look at that chin, those eyes, those lips....

I am surprised that Angelillo has not commented on this one. It is a great film. If you haven't seen it, do.

One of my favorite movies, long time the second favorite one from the Powell-Pressburger collaboration, right after the unbeatable A MATTER OF LIFE AND DEATH.


And what an unforgettable and terrifying shot...






But the more I'm getting older, the more I find LIFE AND DEATH OF COLONEL BLIMP being a more touching and profound movie.

But at that stage, who cares about ranking ? All these titles are among the best movies ever made.

One of the cinema's greatest climaxes. This time, however, I think the visuals do more to carry the music, rather than vice versa.

That above pic of Kathleen Byron's character at her most insane looks so ... modern. Like an image you would see in a recent Japanese or Japanese-inspired horror film.

As Angelillo says, who cares about ranking? BLACK NARCISSUS, THE RED SHOES, A CANTERBURY TALE, etc. Powell & Pressburger's 1941-1951 streak of brilliant films is a treasure trove.

Oh man, you ain't kidding. The first time I ever saw the movie, that shot scared the crap out of me. Somehow, it seemed so out of place, almost like it was from another film. But by that point in the movie, you had no idea what to expect next. Absolutely effective and unsettling.

ETA: To me it was very reminiscent of the final shot of Barbara Steele's eyes in "The Pit And The Pendulum". I do not remember offhand which movie came first... I say reminiscent because I saw TPATP first.

Same here. As Mark stated above, it's a very modern shot, unexpected and effective despite a previous alert : something wicked this way comes...





I don't remember that particular shot from TPATP you're referring to but I'd say that any shot of Steele's eyes is bloody effective ! wink

This. The jump cut where they forgot she was still gagged and left behind in the Iron Maiden.



Whew! Still nightmarish to this day. Especially with the underscore.

Now I remember !

And thanks to Kathleen and Barbara I have now to remember where I've put my night light away...
