Ingmar Bergman

Ingmar Bergman

Film as dream, film as music. No art passes our conscience in the way film does, and goes directly to our feelings, deep down into the dark rooms of our souls.More Ingmar Bergman [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Everything is worth precisely as much as a belch, the difference being that a belch is more satisfying.More Ingmar Bergman [10/14/2011 12:10:46]
I write scripts to serve as skeletons awaiting the flesh and sinew of images.More Ingmar Bergman [10/14/2011 12:10:22]
Commemoration of Albrecht Dürer, artist, 1528, and Michelangelo Buonarrotti, artist, spiritual writer, 1564 It is my opinion that art lost its basic creative drive the moment it was separated from worship. It severed an umbilical cord... In former days the artist remained unknown and his work was to the glory of God... Today the individual has become the highest form and the greatest bane of artistic creation.More Ingmar Bergman [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I hope I never get so old I get religious.More Ingmar Bergman [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
One has to manage alone as best one can. (Karin Bergman)More Ingmar Bergman [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Film as dream, film as music. No art passes our conscience in the way film does, and goes directly to our feelings, deep down into the dark rooms of our souls.More Ingmar Bergman [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I usually take a walk after breakfast, write for three hours, have lunch and read in the afternoon. Demons don’t like fresh air - they prefer it if you stay in bed with cold feet; for a person who is as chaotic as me, who struggles to be in control, it is an absolute necessity to follow these rules and routines. If I let myself go, nothing will get done.More Ingmar Bergman [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Occasionally I sense an insane wail deep down in the pit, the echo alone reaching me, striking without warning, a child weeping uninhibitedly, imprisoned forever.More Ingmar Bergman [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Perhaps we are the same person. Perhaps we have no limits; perhaps we flow into each other, stream through each other, boundlessly and magnificently. You bear terrible thoughts; it is almost painful to be near you. At the same time it is enticing. Do you know why?More Ingmar Bergman [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I want to stop. I want to stay on Fårö, and read the books I haven’t read, find out things I haven’t yet found out. I want to write things I haven’t written. To listen to music, and talk to my neighbors. To live together with my wife a very calm, very secure, very lazy existence, for the rest of my life.More Ingmar Bergman [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Sometimes I go for days without speaking to a soul. I think, “I should make that call", but I put it off. Because there’s something pleasurable about not talking. But then I love talking, so it’s not that. But sometimes it can be nice. It’s not like I sit here philosophizing, because I’ve no talent for that. It’s just this thing about silence that’s so wonderful.More Ingmar Bergman [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
When you feel perpetually unmotivated, you start questioning your existence in an unhealthy way; everything becomes a pseudo intellectual question you have no interest in responding whatsoever. This whole process becomes your very skin and it does not merely affect you; it actually defines you. So, you see yourself as a shadowy figure unworthy of developing interest, unworthy of wondering about the world - profoundly unworthy in every sense and deeply absent in your very presence.More Ingmar Bergman [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Fellini, Kurosawa, and Bunuel move in the same field as Tarkovsky. Antonioni was on his way, but expired, suffocated by his own tediousness.More Ingmar Bergman [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Tarkovsky for me is the greatest [director], the one who invented a new language, true to the nature of film, as it captures life as a reflection, life as a dream.More Ingmar Bergman [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
To humiliate and be humiliated, I think, is a crucial element in our whole social structure. It's not only the artist I'm sorry for. It's just that I know exactly where he feels most humiliated.More Ingmar Bergman [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The older I become, the more I think about my mother.More Ingmar Bergman [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
To feel. To trust the feeling. I long for thatMore Ingmar Bergman [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
When you die, you are extinguished. From being you will be transformed to non-being. A god does not necessarily dwell among our capricious atoms.More Ingmar Bergman [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I supply my own angels and demons. I exist on a stony beach, which lowers itself in waves toward a protective ocean. A dog barks; a child cries; the day sinks and becomes night. You can never scare me. No human being will be able to scare me ever again. I have a prayer that I repeat to myself in absolute stillness: May a wind come to stir up the ocean and the stifling twilight. May a bird come from water out there and explode the silence with its call.More Ingmar Bergman [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
One of ennui's most terribel components is the overwhelming feeling of ennui that comes over you whenever you try to explain it.More Ingmar Bergman [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I have always had the ability to attach my demons to my chariot.More Ingmar Bergman [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I'm planning, you see, to try to confine myself to the truth. That's hard for an old, inveterate fantasy martyr and liar who has never hesitated to give truth the form he felt the occasion demanded.More Ingmar Bergman [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Say anything you want against The Seventh Seal. My fear of death — this infantile fixation of mine — was, at that moment, overwhelming. I felt myself in contact with death day and night, and my fear was tremendous. When I finished the picture, my fear went away. I have the feeling simply of having painted a canvas in an enormous hurry — with enormous pretension but without any arrogance. I said, 'Here is a painting; take it, please.More Ingmar Bergman [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
I write scripts to serve as skeletons awaiting the flesh and sinew of images.More Ingmar Bergman [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
