While reading about the death of Swedish film director Ingmar Bergman at the age of 89, I came across this brief review of his career in the Guardian.
As it explains:
"In later years, Bergman rarely left his home on the Swedish island of Faro and a reputation as a recluse, a stern old magus locked away from all but his nearest and dearest.
In the course of a rare interview in 2004, he admitted that his own personal favourites of his films were Winter Light, Persona and Cries and Whispers.
However, he added that he rarely watched any of his movies because he now found them 'too depressing.'"
How odd. I never realised I had something in common with Ingmar Bergman. But I do. I found his films to be too depressing to watch also.
Anyone seen the Simpsons movie yet?
