20:07 (Skådespelerska)

By popular demand, the 20:07 series returns

I can't guarantee the same results at home (different players/timing) I use a VLC

"Don't you think I understand? The hopeless dream of being --not seeming, but being. In every waking moment aware, alert. The tug of war --what you are with others and who you really are. A feeling of vertigo and a constant hunger to be finally exposed. To be seen through, cut down... even obliterated. Every tone of voice a lie. Every gesture false. Every smile a grimace"

I love "Persona".

One of the most amazing faces to ever have a camera pointed at it. I could just stare at her for hours.

Yes, Persona is such a powerful film. I saw it for the first time 5 years ago, and I was amazed at how mordern it felt. Love it!

Love the film.

Meantime, sorry to wade off-topic, but just seen your updated predictions...

Keira at #1? Really?

Having seen the film, I honestly can't see her getting a nod. It's a solid enough turn, but nowhere near as impressive as the work on Pride, and unless they "demote" her to support (where a case COULD be made) I can't see it happening.

Unless this proves to be as weak a field as 1994 or 2005, I'd file under "also ran".

A Bergman series starts at the Castro Theatre in San Francisco tomorrow. Persona plays next week, and I can't wait to see it on the big screen!


i'm so jealous. you must write up a lengthy report

I will try. October's a hectic month for me and lengthy reports require a long period of concentration. But your suggestion is a good way to light a little fire under my feet.
