Ingmar Bergman Complete

Made for Swedish television, this three-part video documentary (2004) is widely regarded as the best treatment of the theater and film director’s life and work. Culled from a considerable amount of interview and archival material, it’s split between Bergman’s films, his more extensive (and, many would say, more important and accomplished) theater work, and his life, in that order. Marie Nyrerod is the sole credited director, though Bergman is rumored to have had some hand in the proceedings. In Swedish with subtitles. 174 min. (JR)
