R.I.P. Ingmar Bergman

A compilation of links but I’m sure the tributes will be far and wide. Keith has some screenshots here. He was 89. Remarkable. A remarkable artist. Here’s the one post I’ve written about a Bergman film. Time to ponder what he has given us and what we have lost. 4-page obit in the Times

    random babble;
    Loved him. Haunted art house cinemas in the ’60s. Loved ‘Sawdust and Tinsel’. Loved ‘Wild Strawberries’. Loved ‘The Seventh Seal’. I own it. I just watched it last week. Gunnar Bjornstrand is my favortie Bergman actor. Great as knight’s squire. Especially loved Bibi Anderson in that one too. Loved ‘The Virgin Spring’. I guess I can’t get enough of medieval bleak. I can’t say I ever saw anything of his that didn’t make a direct hit on me somehow somewhere. Ingmar Bergman belongs on the Mt. Rushmore of film makers.

    I’m ashamed to say I’ve only seen a subset of Bergman’s films – the bleakness issue has always made me put off seeing some of them, in spite of their high quality. Smiles of a Summer Night is wonderful; Fanny & Alexander is one of my all-time favorite movies…
