The Ingmar Bergman podcast feels like a truly special occasion. To celebrate his centennial year, and to join the rest of the vast Bergman coverage at Filmotomy, this week’s recording is all about the great Swedish filmmaker. Host Bianca Garner, fresh off her own Bergman binge, is joined by Robin Write, and a recently acquired Ingmar super-fan in Aaron Charles. The discussion looks at the legend film director’s career, the themes that ran through his filmogoraphy, as well as trying to establish his greatest works. A tough feat given the choices. Please listen, subscribe to SoundCloud and/or iTunes, and leave us all your Bergmanesque comments.
