Ingmar Bergman's Cinema (The Criterion Collection)(1946-2003) Blu-ray

At the heart of this centennial celebration is Ingmar Bergman's Cinema, a thirty-Blu-ray collector's set, the most comprehensive collection of Bergman's work ever released on home video. Organized as a film festival-with opening and closing nights bookending double features and centerpieces-this selection spans six decades and thirty-nine films, including such celebrated classics as The Seventh Seal, Persona, and Fanny and Alexander alongside previously unavailable works like Dreams, The Rite, and Brink of Life. Accompanied by a 248-page book with essays on each program, as well as by more than thirty hours of supplemental features, Ingmar Bergman's Cinema traces themes and images across Bergman's career, blazing trails through the films for longtime fans and newcomers alike.
