Ingmar Bergman, dead at 89
There are no more mysteries, no more pondering on death for Mr. Bergman anymore. He was a giant of both the cinema and the stage. He lived a full-life, with many accomplishments and directed his last film just a couple-years-ago (on HD video, like a young director!). For those of us who love his films--we all know the ones--he is virtually unchallenged as a great international director. He will also be missed. His crisis of faith is ended, he has what we don't: peace.His life now makes sense, as all narratives with an ending tend to. It's now time to truly examine his life and his work. RIP.
