RIP: Ingmar Bergman

Posted by Mat Brewster on July 31, 2007


I’ve only seen a few of Bergman’s films, but everyone has left a lasting impression. Wild Strawberries is up there in my list of greatest films ever made, but the Seventh Seal and its chess game with death contains so much imagery that it is what I always think of when I think of Bergman.

To tell the truth I didn’t realize the old man was still alive, but finding out about his death now, brings a pain to my heart. The ever lovely Lisa McKay has a nice write up over at Blogcritcs.

    It’s a bad week for celluloid visionaries. Michelangelo Antonioni died yesterday.

    Here’s another, longer more comprehensive piece on Bergman.

    I hadn’t heard about Antonioni Beth, sad news indeed.
