Critic Reviews for Bergman: A Year in a Life

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (4)

  • Magnusson captures the humanity, wit and contradictions of a man who, like Leonard Cohen, is too often dismissed as a gloom-monger.

  • A valuable reminder of greatness.

  • It is a film that's busy and always forging ahead, teeming with ideas and contradictions. In that sense, it closely mirrors the subject it tries, however incompletely, to portray.

  • One of the most honest and overflowing portraits of a film artist that I can remember seeing.

  • There are lots of useful nuggets, not least in the firm but fair coverage of Bergman's less attractive traits.

    Jan 28, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…
  • Unveiling personality traits previously unknown, alongside footage that's captivating to observe, this lovingly constructed documentary will leave you with a fresh appetite to revisit Bergman's filmography in as much detail as presented throughout.
