Many of Bergman's films are free to stream as part of my Lovefilm subscription package. So to begin with I've put on my list:
- The Virgin Spring
- Wild Strawberries
- Autumn Sonata
- Cries and Whispers
- Scenes from a Marriage
- and the seventh title on the list is aptly... The Seventh Seal.
So what I'd like to know from all the Bergman fans out there is where should I start?
What is the most accessible of these?
Could anyone actually give me a suggested order to watch these in?
Are there others that I have missed that should be in my required viewing?
If I don't like the first couple I watch, is it worth continuing or should I just accept I have bad taste?
For the record, I'm thinking of starting with either The Seventh Seal (because at least I can enjoy the part that influenced Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey) or The Virgin Spring (as I hear The Last House on the Left was based on this story). But please get involved and persuade me otherwise if you feel I should start elsewhere. Please comment below...
