giallolooks:

Nine years after first viewing Black Narcissus, the character of Sister Ruth remains important to me. She is not really too sympathetic…she is spiteful, bitter, and hateful…she and Clodagh are somewhat pitted against each other as personifications of good and evil because even though they both have doubts and insecurities, Clodagh suppresses hers and puts her duty first while Ruth lets hers consume her. Black Narcissus is a melodrama and a very overt one but I honestly think that Sister Ruth is a very fine character and one of the best examples of an hysterical woman, an angry woman, an ugly woman, a real ‘madwoman’ in western cinema. I remember when I first saw the film that something I loved was how I was conscious that her ultimate ‘evilness’ emerged from herself.

I felt that I had seen many films, classic and contemporary, in which women were evil for no reason…they wanted to cause disharmony and ruin lives for no apparent reason and also seemed all-powerful. Watching Black Narcissus…it was apparent to me at all times that Sister Ruth’s crippling insecurity and self-hatred informed all her decisions. Her paranoia and loneliness were present in every shot of her running around furtively in the technicolor chiaroscuro of the palace; every close-up of her giving a sickly smile. I saw these neuroses eat away at her until they finally drove her truly Mad…Mad with a capital “M” because she turned into a classical Madwoman. the entire last scene…her applying the lipstick slowly and defiantly in front of Clodagh…being rejected by Mr. Dean…emerging from the doors with those red eyes and deathly pale lips…is like a carefully orchestrated visual “mad song”; as potent as “Il dolce suono” from 
Lucia di Lammermoor. I love Sister Ruth and I am thankful that she was a formative part of my earliest days of watching and loving movies. She will always have a place in my personal “House of Psychotic Women”.

TALWEG : - (Anarcho Freaks, 2014)
Pourtant, des caves, j’en ai fréquentées, parfois contraint et forcé moi aussi. Et en frousse, je m’y connais – dois-je balancer les noms de Substance Mort & Hate Supreme ? Alors, je retrouve mon minotaure : vite fait (la bande n’est pas longue) mais bien fait. En face A, la batterie assène et les voix donnent fort, accordées sur un même diapason hirsute. En face B, deux autres morceaux se répondent (le second se nourrirait peut être même du premier, dont il renverserait les pistes ?) dans un genre folk gothique : poignant !

Pink Floyd - The Star Club, Copenhagen, Denmark; September 13, 1967
I posted this one a while back but the link is long gone. If you need it, Big O’s got it (and this remaster might be a bit better, too). And you need it! This tape surfaced a few years ago — it’s a rare recording of the Barrett-era Floyd onstage. Vocals are very low in the mix, but whatever, just think of it as an awesome instrumental set and prepare to scream thy last scream.
