A film by Mr. Pretentious

Cries and Whispers is far too pretentious too be taken seriously. The fact that Ingmar Bergman is still regarded as a masterful director is one of those big mysteries in cinema. Sadly Bergman's films spanned during the 50's all the way up to the 80's, shame, as Bergman could have really made it into today's generation; with its silly emotional silliness, confronting life's many many flaws, but I'm... read more

Is this a review of the film or just a recap of your immature disdain for Bergman?

OK WTF movies (25 movies items)

""A family drama takes place in a mansion in the late 1800's. Karin and Maria watch over their sister Agnes' sickbed together with the servant Anna. Through flashbacks the lives of both sisters are described, which are full of lies, deceit, callousness, self despise, guilt and forbidden love. Agnes' dramatic death cramp arouses only aversion in them. They both retreat in their own way from her when she grasps for their hands.""

This is just a film for artsies, I wouldn't watch it.

Utter pretentious garbage.” read more
