Ingmar Bergman (1918-2007)

Requiescat in pace.

Funny thing is that Bergman is one of those people who I always find myself thinking died years ago.

I was never a huge Bergman fan (my taste in foreign films runs more to Godard and Kurosawa), but I remember my mother taking me to a showing of "Wild Strawberries" around 1960 or so. I must have been six or seven. I couldn't tell you anything about the film, but two things have stuck in my mind to this day: the clock with no hands, and the revelation that people laugh in Swedish exactly the same as they do in American!

LOL i've never been a huge fan of Bergman either (or Antonioni, for that matter)

still, it feels like an era's ending with them checking out within a day of each other, y'know?
