Ingmar Bergman, RIP at 89

Out of this world

Ingmar Bergman lived deservedly to a ripe old age. His films brought joy and passion to many, addressing issues that most of us don't face or think about in our world of commodification and instantaneous gratification. Although many rep film houses in the USA have gone the way of the rest of the gentrification of our cities, Bergman's films, a staple at these houses, remain.
