Ingmar Bergman died today

July 30, 2007

I feel rather ignorant having seen only 3 of his films.  But I do understand that his passing is a sad day for film lovers and film makers.  He was an influential director, and I think I will make an effort to see more of his films.  I do remember finding The Seventh Seal to be remarkable in its cinematography and pacing, even if I found the idea of a humanized “death” to be a bit silly.  Thanks to that film I was more readily accepting of the humanized death in “Meet Joe Black”, which was a flawed yet touching film.
