Anticipation: Movies I'm looking forward to seeing (25 movies items)

"The Magician is a story about - I have no fucking clue, and that's why I'm so excited to see it. An Ingmar Bergman film that I haven't heard people talking about all the time. I'm actually going to get to see the movie before already being exposed to a bunch of film clips and scenes. "

"12.10 Elokuvan paras puoli on ehdottomasti sen monipuolinen hahmokaarti ja erittäin kiinnostava dialogi, mutta koko elokuvalta tuntuu puuttuvan hieman ponnekkuuta, vaikka sitä lopussa toki jo löytyykin jonkin verran. Tämä ponnekkuus ei periaatteessa elokuvaa seuratessa pahemmin häiritse, sillä hahmojen dialogia on jo erittäin miellyttävää seurata yhdessä Bergmanin hienon kamerankäytön kanssa."

"All of Ingmar Bergman's movies, especially his early ones, have been recommended as excellent films exploring existential themes."

Films I've Seen In 2011 - Best To Worst (75 movies items)

" Only my second Bergman, as shocking as it sounds, but I should be making amends in the coming weeks thanks to FILM4's Bergman season. It's a plodding, I suppose subliminal, comedy that, admittedly provides plenty of laughs, but it never fully engages nor provokes any real shocks or a sense of mystery, no matter how hard von Sydow tries. It has a lot in common with Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream if that can convey how much of an oddball this film is. Gunnar Björnstrand and Ingrid Thul"

"Jan.26 An interesting, provocative plot with characters that on paper, would read as an attractive sinister dossier. But they didn't came out together and one reason, I believe, had something to do with editing. Minor characters take the spotlight at will and that kind of slowed down the momentum for me. One case is the romance between the coachman and the maid which I think, was a tad longer than was necessary. As with the case maybe, with other early Bergman films, complete substory sequences"
