Criterion Sunday 208: “A Film Trilogy by Ingmar Bergman”

You’re never far from a Bergman film in the Criterion collection — and indeed this “trilogy” includes four films, as one of them is a documentary about the making of Winter Light. As ever, themes of religious doubt and persecution come to the fore in all three, all of which have a cloistered setting and a rigorous technical mastery. There’s no doubt that Through a Glass Darkly, Winter Light and The Silence present a unified vision on the world, it’s just a rather austere one.
