Classic Movies Posted by KC on Apr 7, 2019

Autumn Sonata (1978, Ingmar Bergman)

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on Aug 27, 2018

Somewhat recently I read an observation along the following lines–Ingmar Bergman created great roles for actresses by giving them absolutely awful emotions to essay. Whoever said it (I’ve tried, without success to properly credit her) said it a lot better. But at around the hour mark of Autumn Sona read more

Through a Glass Darkly (1961, Ingmar Bergman)

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on Apr 27, 2018

At eighty-nine minutes, Through a Glass Darkly never has a chance to get tedious, which is part of the problem. Writer-director Bergman has just introduced the characters, just established the ground situation, when he tries a graceful segue into the characters and their relationships being familia read more

Wild Strawberries (1957, Ingmar Bergman)

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on Jul 8, 2017

Wild Strawberries is about a septuagenarian doctor (Victor Sjöström) being awarded an honorary degree. Sjöström’s narration sets it up in the first scene, before the opening titles. Director Bergman’s script, through the narration, lays out the entire ground situation before the titles, in fact. read more

The Seventh Seal (1957, Ingmar Bergman)

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on Oct 7, 2016

The Seventh Seal has a lot of striking imagery. Gunnar Fischer’s cinematography is peerless, but it’s more–it’s how the photography works with the shot composition, how the shots work with one another (Lennart Wallén’s editing is simultaneously amiable and stunning). And then there’s how read more

Shame (1968, Ingmar Bergman)

The Stop Button Posted by Andrew Wickliffe on Jul 27, 2015

Shame has three or four sections. Director Bergman doesn’t draw a lot of attention to the transition between the first parts, he hides it in the narrative. Liv Ullmann and Max von Sydow are a married couple living on an island following a war. Not much information about the war, but they̵ read more

2014 Ingmar Bergman Lifetime Achievement Award: Meryl Streep

The Movie Rat Posted by Bernardo Villela on Jan 9, 2015

This award is named after Bergman because when I was set to establish an award of its type his last film blew me away and was nominated for many awards. The idea then is that it’s not a parting shot but rather recognition of someone still very much at the top after many, many years. Meryl Str read more

Considerations for the 2013 Ingmar Bergman Lifetime Achievement Award (2)

The Movie Rat Posted by Bernardo Villela on Sep 3, 2013

Originally I didn’t want to list considerations for either Entertainer of the Year Award or Neutron Star Award and the same goes for the Lifetime Achievement Award. The reasoning behind this was that these awards being for a body of work should’ve had their winners be rather apparent. Ho read more

The Movie Rat Posted by Bernardo Villela on Jan 4, 2013

In my 2005 BAM Awards wrap-up, I wrote how I was considering creating a Lifetime Achievement Award and giving it to Ingmar Bergman. The idea was to award him upon completion of his swan song that proved unnecessary when I saw Saraband and it was one of my favorite films of that year and he won Best read more
