Ingmar Bergman’s Cinema

Ingmar Bergman was a director who served, in many ways, as my gateway into art film, international film, and an overall love of movies. I always loved movies, but mostly just pop/mainstream releases. It wasn’t until college when I discovered a podcast who introduced me to world cinema, which started with Ingmar Bergman’s most famous films: Wild Strawberries and The Seventh Seal. This introduction sent me in a million different directions, starting my film education in haste. Through that journey, I have caught a few more Bergman classics, but when the Criterion Collection announced a new boxset of 39 Bergman films, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on it, and rediscover my love of his films, including an introduction to many I’ve never seen before. So with the boxset now sitting on my shelf, I found it an appropriate time to do a formal marathon of the film legend’s filmography.
