Quote from: Bunny on April 12, 2007, 02:01:17 PMIs that still around? I can remember seeing that when it first came out. Impressive the first time, but less so on second viewing. The symbolism, the metaphor of the family for the German nation, etc. all grew a bit heavy especially with the emphasis on the sexual perversions of certain family members. Visually striking, but in the end not as satisfying when the shock of the images wore off.
Quote from: Don Giovanni on April 13, 2007, 12:17:57 PMYou're obviously well versed in foreign cinema. May I ask, which other directors do you like? Do you have a favourite film making nation?
Quote from: Don Giovanni on April 13, 2007, 01:10:11 PMBergman! Along with Fellini, he is my favourite director. During Persona I had my most important cinematic experience. I would say that it is one of the ten greatest films of all time. I like the way it makes use of Brecht's Verfremdungseffekt to show the viewer that film is, after all, artificial. The second half of the film (the part following Elisabet's stepping on the glass) is one of the most wildly ambiguous parts in cinema, for me.Needless to say, films like 'The Seventh Seal' and 'Wild Strawberries' are great but I don't think they can compare to 'Persona'
Quote from: Don Giovanni on April 14, 2007, 04:13:26 AMWell, I got bored with reproduced Hollywood films that have no substance and rely on plots that have been used many times before.
QuotePeople think that Bergman can be pretentious at times
