BTXLVI 2004: Hour of the Wolf: The Search for Sanity

Hour of the Wolf: The Search for Sanity. Greg Carson. 2004. ⭐⭐★★★★.

This is the first Bergman film that was sold to distributors in the US before it was filmed, and as such the rights for the DVD are somehow in American hands. But that means that there’s a documentary featurette in English, edited together in a very American way: Short edits and a dozen talking heads saying a sentence each.

Liv Ullmann has interesting things to say about Hour of the Wolf, but as these documentary featurettes go… it’s a documentary featurette.

This post is part of the 87 Bergman Things series.
