Music in Darkness (1948)

December 19, 2010

The next two films on my list were Man with an Umbrella (1946) and A Ship Bound for India (1947). They came out on DVD earlier this year, as did So Close to Life (1958). Each costs just £9 in Sweden, so I plan to buy them when I’m over there in a couple of […]

And nobody’s films have made me consider the world on the same intellectual plane. I realise that sounds pretentious, and sometimes Bergman’s films are […]
