Feature: Ingmar Bergman’s Cinema

In honor of Criterion’s 39-film box set, a discussion on all of the films contained within. One of cinema’s strongest voices, Bergman created introspective works that went to the edges of the medium and saw beyond. Bergman is one of the filmmakers whose work is more than a voice within a medium, and goes on to define the medium altogether. Bergman’s contributions speak from a place of complete unity of light, sound, movement and emotion.
