RIP Ingmar Bergman

Gone off to play chess with death, I assume.

Quoted from CNN…. 

In a 2004 interview with Swedish broadcaster SVT, the reclusive filmmaker acknowledged that he was reluctant to view his work.

“I don’t watch my own films very often. I become so jittery and ready to cry … and miserable. I think it’s awful,” Bergman said.

One thought on “RIP Ingmar Bergman”

  1. I trust he has indeed gone to play chess with the devil – and win. I am reminded of the lovely tribute to Ingemar in Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure…So many of his films have intensely memorable passages – Wild Strawberries; Smiles of a Summer Night; The Magician and of course Seventh Seal…
