Darn. I did not know about Antonioni... Thanks for a great post, as usual.

Nice memorial post. All three were such interesting personalities.

"Autumn Sonata" was one of those movies that changed my life. It came at a time in my life when I was starting to allow myself to challenge our own family myths. I am so glad you write about it the way that you do, Danny. I was (still am) a great Bergman fan. Was also blown away by "Cries and Whispers." I often think back to scenes from both of those movies. The end of some kind of era, at any rate. I have been waiting for you to write about it and you have not failed me! Thank you, Danny.

Danny, I liked your post, as usual. I'll have to check out some of the movies you mentioned. Sorry to comment off topic, but will you please have Kendall call or e-mail me? You can delete this comment if you'd like. Thanks, Julie

I used to yell at Tom Snyder too. He and Cosell used to be the only scream-worthy people on tv but I think they started something...

Just how big IS that box you use to hold all those letters from 1970s celebrities?!

I imagine you could probably make a book just from that... "Letters to Danny". :)

The losses are piling up, Big Time! You should revisit those two early films of Ingmar's....Now that you have "lived" and experienced so much yourself..I think you may view them from an entirely different perspective....

Blow-Up is such a wonderful film...It was a very heady time in films---Forign and American---the 50's, 60's and 70's and some in the 80's, too....the honesty and innovative things that came diring those decades...Not to be revisited,I'm afraid! The "blockbuster" seems to be what people want now....These films not oly wouldn't be made today, there would hardly be an audience for them except for the minority of people hungry to be moved...! Sad times.
Speaking if special films...Did you and Kendall ever watch that DVD of the "THE GODDESS" that I gave her? This is very hard to come by, so I hope it didn't get lost or worse, distorted by the heat of the car in summer! (lol) I mention it because it was released in 1958 and was one of the first American Indy Films that had a feel of a Foreign Film.

talk about a post rich with history. very nicely done. persona is a movie that has stuck with me since the night i first saw it at a friend's home. perhaps the aspect of multiple personalities is what it was but it's also just a really well done movie.

I loved your essay on Liv Ullmann's face. I'm sure I'll write about that. At the moment, though, I want to encourage you with all the good vibes I can summon, if such a thing is possible, to watch "The Seventh Seal." If you're not transported by this inimitable film, I'll accept some sort of internet penance.
