What are people saying?

  • Samuel T.'s rating of the film On a Bench in a Park

    Is this way-too-early-near-career-ending film a self-signed epitaph? Was this man so shadowed by Bergman's creative output that he eclipsed himself? Granted Ekman sent a famous telegram to Bergman after "Smiles of a Summer Night," came out, saying, "I give up," but Ekman kept making films til '64. They're not all masterpieces, no, but some of them--under looked gems. Deserving of digging up, the other Swede.
