Cries & Whispers (1972)

I thoroughly enjoyed re-seeing this one in the way it should be GLORIOUS 35mm

This was truly a one-of-a-kind experience...this film - although raw and sometimes disturbing, is a masterpiece - it now ranks as perhaps Bergman's best in my eyes.

The ACMI in Melbourne did an Essential Bergman series earlier this year, and I 'happened to be in town' for a swap meet...

I am sad to agree. I have only seen Smultronstellet (Wild Strawberries) and found it a bit boring, really. I do want to see Det Sjuende Innseglet (The Seventh Seal) at least, before I say I don't like him.

I am more fan of one he inspired myself, Woody Allen. Especially the older ones, absolutely hilarious or gloomy (September, Another Woman and so on)

Nothing like a bit of Existentialism on film to keep you interested. Brilliant films and I have shown many of them in the Cinema.
