Incredibly wonderful documentary is more of a conversation with the director but this thing is quite shocking in how much detail Bergman reveals about his persona life. It's very clear that he is a troubled and haunted man and he speaks honestly about his bad childhood and the many deaths to his love ones that have shaped him as a filmmaker. Most of the time these conversation pieces get boring but this one here was great from start to finish even though they don't actually talk about too many of his films.
