A moment of mild embarrassment

Ingmar Bergman has died. Really, it’s all over the blogs, so it must be true. But here’s the thing: I don’t think I’ve ever seen a single Bergman film. Not one. Not even the really famous ones, like umm… you know the one… it has chess in it?

The Seventh Seal blew my brains out with a gun of gravitas when I finally saw it a few months ago, and I am a philistine. I thought I would spend the whole time making fun of ass-chinned Death in his little hood, but that was not the case at all.

Well, as it turns out, The Seventh Seal is currently showing at a few London cinemas. So I think I’ll go and see it.

I keep wanting to call him August Strindberg. But then I always get Strindberg and Schoenberg mixed up as well.
