Obviously Canterbury Tale, Matter of Life and Death, Black Narcissus, Red Shoes, Peeping Tom are the greats.

Actually, Powell is my favourite director (along with Bunuel) and I thought Peeping Tom was boring both times I watched it. BLACK NARCISSUS, however, is one of my all-time favourite films and I still can't get enough of it. Then comes ONE OF OUR AIRCRAFT IS MISSING and I KNOW WHERE I'M GOING.

I've only seen A Matter of Life and Death, The Red Shoes, Peeping Tom and Black Narcissus. Black Narcissus is easily one of the greatest films ever made.
