    Thanks – great article – best part for me is just to know that there are people who think about film that way – not too high flown – if that is the phrase, and not too simplistic either. That’s the second Bergman reference you’ve shared… I’m a synthesizer – I don’t work life out in art – though what an ability if you had it! But I do get that elation from art. Thanks again for sharing. I’ll know what to look for at the library film dept.! Date: Fri, 5 Jul 2013 17:18:36 +0000 To: tim_gilbreath@live.com

    • I saw this in college while taking a Bergman class and it didnt register all that much. This time it was much more impressive. Guess I am more aware of aging issues now. Can’t imagine why?
