Fanny And Alexander Criterion Blu-ray Review

28 December 2011 6:16 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Ingmar Bergman is one of the most respected names in cinema, which comes with a price. When in The Seventh Seal he had a knight and the embodiment of death play a chess game, he unfortunately crystallized what Americans feared was the nature of “Foreign Films.” They seemed pretentious and humorless, about suffering and existentialism. So it’s understandable if the body of work is approached with some hesitation. But – though it starts slowly – Fanny and Alexander, his 1982 farewell to directing cinema, begins with a Christmas celebration that features sex and fart jokes. Seriously, jokes plural. Our review of Criterion’s Blu-ray of Fanny and Alexander follows after the jump. Bertil Guve stars as Alexander Ekdahl, His parents act and run the local theater, and as the film begins they are finishing their Christmas show and going to dinner with the matriarch of their family Helena (Gunn Wallgren). There we meet the family. »

New this Week: ‘Hugo,’ ‘The Muppets’ and ‘Super 8 (DVD)’

23 November 2011 6:00 AM, PST | The Scorecard Review | See recent Scorecard Review news »

Hitting movie theaters this weekend:

Arthur ChristmasJames McAvoyJim BroadbentBill Nighy

HugoAsa ButterfieldChloë Grace MoretzChristopher Lee

The Muppets - Amy AdamsJason SegelChris Cooper

Movie of the Week

Hugo

The Stars: Asa ButterfieldChloë Grace MoretzChristopher Lee

The Plot: Set in 1930s Paris, an orphan who lives in the walls of a train station is wrapped up in a mystery involving his late father and an automaton.

The Buzz: Director Martin Scorsese is not known for his family films. Throughout his career Scorsese has stuck to churning out gritty/grisly street films, realistic & vibrant tales about the harshness of life, about the hard-nose battle of good versus evil, of right versus wrong (of moral relativity), and of psychoses versus neuroses. His films are fairly hardcore and as thus are very often hard-r. His latest offering in Hugo, looks to be an »

Fanny and Alexander Blu Ray Review

17 November 2011 12:56 PM, PST | FilmJunk | See recent FilmJunk news »

Fanny and Alexander Directed by: Ingmar Bergman Written by: Ingmar Bergman Starring: Börje Ahlstedt, Pernilla Allwin, Allan Edwall, Ewa Fröling, Bertil Guve I was faced with a dilemma when I finally sat down to watch Ingmar Bergman's epic 1982 family drama, Fanny and Alexander. Not unlike his "Scenes From a Marriage", Criterion's wonderful blu ray set contains two versions of the film: the 3 hour theatrical cut and the original five and a half hour TV miniseries. Which version do I watch? I've always hated being forced to make such choices and now that DVD and blu ray have afforded filmmakers the option to release various director's cuts and unrated versions, it seem to happen all too often. Luckily, this situation seemed a little more clear cut. Obviously if Bergman shot and released a five hour version, That was the complete version. So that's where I started. The first hour of »

New this Week: ‘Drive Angry,’ ‘Hall Pass’ and ‘Due Date (DVD)’

22 February 2011 6:45 AM, PST | The Scorecard Review | See recent Scorecard Review news »

Hitting movie theaters this weekend:

Drive AngryNicolas Cage, Amber Heard, William Fichtner

Hall PassOwen Wilson, Jason Sudeikis, Christina Applegate

ShelterJulianne Moore, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Jeffrey DeMunn (limited)

Movie of the Week

Hall Pass

The Stars: Owen Wilson, Jason Sudeikis, Christina Applegate

The Plot: A married man (Wilson) is granted the opportunity to have an affair by his wife.

The Buzz: I’m happy to see, after a four-year hiatus, the Farrelly Brothers are back (Dumb & Dumber, There’s Something About Mary, Shallow Hal) — it’s also nice to see Owen Wilson back to his regular Hollywood hard-working self. I didn’t think the red-band trailer for Hall Pass was as funny as the green-band, but I am still holding out hope that the Farrelly’s and Mr. Wilson are as good a match-up in reality as they are on paper. The supporting cast looks solid, with Jason Sudeikis, »

Fanny And Alexander Review Pt.3 – The Criterion Collection DVD

4 February 2011 5:15 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Ewa Fröling in Ingmar Bergman's Fanny and Alexander Fanny And Alexander Review Pt. 2 The television version of Fanny and Alexander comes on two discs, each with two of the four episodes (although the series is in five 'Acts'), but only with English subtitles. The second of these discs also offers a good forty-minute documentary called A Bergman Tapestry, featuring interviews with Fanny and Alexander producer Jörn Donner, production manager Katinka Farago, art director Anna Asp, assistant director Peter Schildt, and actors Bertil Guve (who now looks like a balder, thinner Guy Pearce), Ewa Fröling, Pernilla August, and Erland Josephson. The final two discs have Bergman's acclaimed, but rather tedious and uninsightful The Making of Fanny and Alexander. The documentary simply follows scenes showing the filming process, with no real discussion or commentary by either Bergman or any of the participants. Especially in this DVD age, this "Making of" feels »

Fanny And Alexander Review – d: Ingmar Bergman

4 February 2011 5:12 PM, PST | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Fanny Och Alexander / Fanny And Alexander (1982) Direction and Screenplay: Ingmar Bergman Cast: Pernilla Allwin, Bertil Guve, Ewa Fröling, Börje Ahlstedt, Jan Malmsjö, Allan Edwall, Gunn Wållgren, Jarl Kulle , Erland Josephson, Pernilla August, Harriet Andersson, Stina Ekblad, Mats Bergman, Gunnar Björnstrand, Lena Olin Oscar Movies Bertil Guve, Pernilla Allwin, Fanny and Alexander By Dan Schneider of Cosmoetica: Why Ingmar Bergman's final 'filmic film,' Fanny och Alexander / Fanny and Alexander (1982) bears its appellation is a mystery — one of many in the film — since the first titular character, Fanny (Pernilla Allwin) is at best a third- or fourth-level supporting character. In fact, in the three-hour theatrical version she is not even mentioned by name for nearly an hour into the film. Fanny and Alexander should have been called "Alexander and Fanny," or simply "Alexander," since it most closely follows two years in the life of young, handsome, brown-haired [...] »
