Black Narcissus was not what I expected it to be. At the beginning of the film, I found myself feeling like it was taking too long for the movie to actually get going. Instead, I wound up noticing the camera shots we discussed in class. There were a lot of ExCl's in this film. However, once the film picked up its pace, I found it more interesting. I'm glad that there were relatable themes included, like suspense, jealousy, and humor. Overall, I thought that it probably seemed a little "slow" because it was made so long ago, but I also thought it was a worthwhile film to watch.
