Ingmar Bergman's Cinema
No filmmaker more deserves the lavish treatment that the Criterion Collection recently bestowed on Ingmar Bergman. Created to honor the Swedish writer-director’s centenary, “Ingmar Bergman's Cinema” pairs 39 films on 30 Blu-ray discs (regrettably, there is no DVD edition) with a nearly 250-page coffee-table book featuring a series of essays by Bergman authorities along with excerpts from archival materials and a multitude of compelling photographs.

But the box is more than a compendium of movies gathered in an attractive vessel—or at least it purports to be. Conceived as a permanent “film festival”, it divides Bergman’s singular oeuvre into vague categories like Opening and Closing Nights, Centerpieces and Double Features. Whether that enriches a film lover’s appreciation of this master’s work is debatable, but it might prove a useful starting point for those in need of some guidance. After all, Bergman directed 45 feature films (and wrote even more) before he died at age 89 in 2007.

Bergman deserves his reputation among cineastes as a meticulous prober of life’s big questions and man’s inability to come to terms with most of them.

Bergman's work speaks to the viewer with remarkable clarity and forthrightness, creating an extraordinary sense of intimacy between his characters and his audience. And it's this deeply human desire to connect which accounts for the quality of Bergman’s work that has been least recognized: its accessibility. That Bergman’s films exist not simply to be studied, but to be watched—even enjoyed!—is amply confirmed by the Criterion Collection’s definitive new boxset devoted to the director’s work. Ingmar Bergman's Cinema doesn't quite contain everything the Swedish master ever directed—a few early films and television works are missing—but it comes close. The 30-disc set includes 39 of Bergman’s features, a few of his rare shorts, numerous documentaries on his life and work, and a gorgeous 248-page book of photographs and essays.
