  1. Alan's thread in the Movies in Ministry section about Bergman's films reminded me that I wanted to post a thread on Bergman's The Silence. Since it's considered the third and final film of his "Faith Trilogy," I'll leave the thread open to include discussion of the other two, Through a Glass Darkly and Winter Light. Please note: This thread will include . After watching The Silence I read a handful of reviews but I found none that even mentioned my interpretation of the film. Maybe I'm looking at it all wrong, maybe everyone else missed what I saw or maybe I just didn't read the right review
  2. A&F Bergman links: The Virgin Spring(1960); Faith Trilogy (Through a Glass Darkly, Winter Light, The Silence) (1961-1963); Persona (1966); Cries and Whispers (1972); Scenes from a Marriage (1973); Fanny & Alexander (1983). Peter mentions an abundance of other Bergman related threads Here. The link on our Top 100 page can be changed to this now that I’ve started a thread on the actual film. Wild Strawberries currently sits at #35 on our Top 100, and while it’s not my favorite Bergman, I'd hate to see it go, as Bergman is so influential in the kind of spirituality I gravitate toward --
  3. Links to Bergman's "Faith Trilogy" (not including The Seventh Seal) - Where should I start my Bergman-ucation? - Bergman fest - Ingmar Bergman 1918-2007 Well ... nothing like finally getting around to one of the most famous Top 100 list films that I haven't seen yet, finishing it, and excitedly going to find the discussion thread that hopefully has been going on since at least 2003 and finding and remembering that there isn't one. No thread - zilch, nada, nothing. Well, alright, not nothing, looks like we have a bunch of disorganized comments and thoughts scattered throughout a whole number o
  4. I just only noticed the existence of this. It looks like great fun, but it doesn't look like there is any easy way to see it yet. VIMOOZ: “... In the mid 1960s Swedish director Ingmar Bergman built a house on the remote island of Fårö in the Baltic Sea. Throughout his life, the exact location of the house was a well-guarded secret. Here Bergman lived and shot some of his seminal films until his death in 2007. In Trespassing Bergman the audience is taken to the house together with directors such as Alejandro González Iñárritu, Claire Denis, Michael Haneke and others, to tell the story of
  5. I could swear remembering a thread on this film, but now I can't find it. (A&F links to Sawdust and Tinsel (1953), Smiles of a Summer Night (1955), The Seventh Seal (1957), Wild Strawberries (1957), The Magician (1958), The Virgin Spring (1960), Bergman's "Faith Trilogy", Persona (1966), Cries and Whispers (1972), Scenes from a Marriage (1973), Fanny and Alexander (1982), Where should I start my Bergman-ucation?, Which Bergman Films for My Class?, Bergman fest and Good books about Ingmar Bergman?)

    Persona (1966)

    I like starting threads. I think this might be Bergman's most cynical film which is quite a feat. I didn't remember it being quite so negative the first time I saw it but now I think his central thesis is that love doesn't exist and what we call love is just an excuse to destroy each other and revel in hatred. He even goes so far as to corrupt the maternal love, and the images of the boy in that beginning make that vision heartbreakingly clear whereas they just confused me the first time. I'm not positive whether the two characters are intended to be one person, lovers, or all of humanity; b
  7. (A&F links to Smiles of a Summer Night (1955), The Seventh Seal (1957), Wild Strawberries (1957), The Magician (1958), The Virgin Spring (1960), Bergman's "Faith Trilogy", Persona (1966), Hour of the Wolf (1968), Cries and Whispers (1972), Scenes from a Marriage (1973), Fanny and Alexander (1982), Where should I start my Bergman-ucation?, Which Bergman Films for My Class?, Bergman fest and Good books about Ingmar Bergman?) It is impressive how much better the films that are critically considered to be Bergman’s lesser works are when compared to most of the most of the top box office hi
  8. Links to the Faith Trilogy (1961-1963), Persona (1966), Cries and Whispers (1972), Scenes from a Marriage (1973), Autumn Sonata ('78) (a thread with very few posts, unfortunately, and one I wish I could contribute to because I know this film is touching, and it touched me, but I can't remember this one at all.), and Fanny & Alexander (1983). I hate starting off a thread with a negative review, but there is no thread, so we might as well start this one off. Those who know me well will probably just roll their eyes and say, "It's Stef. Of course he didn't like it." But I swear to you there
  9. What's a good gateway film? Cries and Whispers Winter Light Persona Other?
  10. Picked up this Bergman film last night at the library. For some reason, I thought it was on our Top 100 list, but no. The copy on the back of the film makes it sound like some pretty fascinating spiritual exploration, but after spending some time today scanning some reviews at Rotten Tomatoes, I'm wondering if I'm ready for this film...or if I should make it a priority, seeing as how there are plenty of other films at home waiting to be watched. The terms "disturbing," "overwhelming," and "devastating" somehow seem to pop up over and over again in reviews, with some writers hinting that they j
  11. I could not find a thread on this film despite some all around Bergman love. Anyhow, just posted a podcast over at The Thin Place podcast. You can listen in at the site itself or through Itunes: SHOW NOTES: 0:00 – Introduction and plot summary. 5:00 – True believers and true doubters. 12:50 – Step by step into darkness. 22:48 – On needing to be loved. 32:17 – Who are we? Masks and public performance. 40:51 – What is our delusion? 44:10 – Closing remarks and recommendations. Here's some commentary from Peter Cowie (spoilers) over at YouTube:
  12. The link on our Top 100 page can be changed to this now that we're beginning a thread on the actual film. A&F Bergman links: Faith Trilogy (Through a Glass Darkly, Winter Light, The Silence) (1961-1963); Persona (1966), Cries and Whispers (1972), Scenes from a Marriage (1973), Fanny & Alexander (1983). Peter mentions an abundance of other Bergman related threads Here. The Virgin Spring stars Max von Sydow, who seems to Bergman what Klaus Kinski is to Herzog, except that I never heard about a fist fight between the two or one shooting (or was it stabbing?) the other down in the Amazon
  13. Warning: This entire thread will contain . Like last time, we'll take the next day or so to post initial reactions to Fanny & Alexander, without responding to others' posts. We'll jump into the actual discussion shortly. OK, we're officially open for business. So, your thoughts?
  14. I want to see this, along with ever other Bergman ever made, this year, but I don't know which version would be the better choice. If Fanny and Alexander sets something of a Bergman standard, I would go with the longer version, which I believe is what Criterion is referring to as the TV version. Same thing for Scenes From a Marriage? Has anyone seen this, or does anyone have some insight as to which version should be in my queue? -s.
  15. Christian, this is for you baby: http://filmforum.com/films/ingmar.html
  16. I hope this is the right place to post this question - I'm wondering if anyone can recommend a few good books about Ingmar Bergman and his films. I'm almost through the MGM DVD set that came out a few months ago, and I'm primed to learn more about the director. But so much has been written, I'm hoping someone can point me in the right direction. Thanks JiM T
