RIP, Ingmar Bergman

Ingmar Bergman is dead. Woody Allen once referred to Bergman as “probably the greatest film artist, all things considered, since the invention of the motion picture camera.” If you haven’t seen any of his films, well, why not start now?

I recommend you begin with Wild Strawberries, which was one of my favourite films when I was growing up, and is probably his most accessible. Bergman’s filmography is awesome—he churned out masterpieces like some of us churn out blog posts. What a man.

More from: The Guardian, the Washington Post, the New York Times, Bloomberg, BBC, the Telegraph and the Times.
