Wherein I attempt to watch 31 horror films over the course of October. 31 horror films that I have never seen before, from obscure to acclaimed classics. We'll see how well I go in actually finding the time to watch and then write about them in some way.
Bergman is a director that I always underestimate despite my better judgement. I've seen a half-decent amount of his films (for what it's worth, my favourite: Persona or Wild Strawberries), but despite liking all but one or two of his films that I have seen, I am routinely surprised at how good I find his work. I am always especially taken by the way he makes his films look so genuine, as if they he trudged his camera back in time. Take The Virgin Spring for instance, it's set in medieval times and from the ring of mud at the hem of a draped dress, to the haphazardly arranged barnyard strewn with matted hay, I can't help but get caught up in the authenticity with which they're presented.
