Our Swedish entry is, unsurprisingly, from Ingmar Bergman, about an old man taking a road trip that also ends up as sort of a trip through his life.
This family comedy/drama centering around two Thanksgiving dinners is thought of by many critics as Woody Allen’s best film, though as a collaboration between Allen and his then-wife Mia Farrow there are some major elephants in the room.
The first film version of Frank Herbert’s best-selling sci-fi novel was directed by David Lynch, of all people, and I found it both extremely watchable and an astounding disaster.
Ingmar Bergman’s allegorical classic about the absence of God during a plague really, really hit home with me on this viewing. Wonder why?
Still shocking, after all these years.
