Re: Movies Seen in 2012


98. Wild Strawberries (A)

Back to the Bergman well, another of his 50s films. This debuted the same year as The Seventh Seal, and is similarly preoccupied with death (as Bergman would be pretty much from this point on) -- though this movie also manages a few laughs at the characters' incessantly debating theology (I'm reminded of George Orwell's comments about Graham Greene in his review of The Heart of the Matter). Beautifully shot, well-acted, and interesting to consider.
