    The Criterion Challenge 2022: Round 2

    No doubt a cinematic mastery in terms of colours, visuals, lighting, and photography, Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger's psychological nun drama is a visionary achievement. Battling between body and spirit, Black Narcissus uncovers convent solitude with pandemonium, twisting its atmospherics into an erotic and sensual plunge from religious pillars.

    Pulsating with poetry and fantasy, Jean Cocteau's Orpheus retells the classic Greek myth in modern day. Adapted from his own 1926 stage play, Cocteau constructs a narrative of dreams within life, the underworld within the "real" world – ineffable realms which permeate the human existence. Incredibly inventive both technically and textually, skillfully implementing cinematic tricks and engaging with dense, complex themes. From visuals to storytelling, the film fully solidifies Cocteau as a true poet.

    ★★★★

    I always had faith. I didn't expect a masterpiece or the greatest comic book movie ever made. I expected a freshly stylised take on Batman, with great performances and atmosphere, and that's what we got. Nitpicks and minor flaws aside, I'm glad that my faith was not let down.

    Long live Battinson.
