We need more great directors


Ingmar Bergman just died. I remember seeing ‘The Seventh Seal” for the first time at the dearly departed Fine Arts Cinema in Berkeley. I can clearly recall the stunned silence among the 20 of us in the crowd when the film ended and the lights went on. There was no movement for a few minutes and then we all slowly shuffled out without a sound. That’s the effect that great movies should have on you.

Obituaries: NY Times, Guardian, SF Chronicle
