Becky D'Anna joins us to discuss the movie SHAME, on our first Thingmar Bergday episode in 2018, the 100th Year of Ingmar Bergman. We start by discussing Becky's love for Bergman and how she got there, and then we discuss the context of the film in terms of his life, career, and the world around him. Among other things, we discuss why this movie is the closest thing to a Clint Eastwood/Michael Bay action film that Bergman ever made.
If you're a fan of Bergman, you've probably heard Becky before. She's one of the most informed people alive about the man and his movies. If you're not yet a fan of Bergman, do yourself a favor... subscribe to Filmstruck, watch some Bergman films, and then listen to all Becky's WrongReel episodes. And while you're at it, check out SHAME and listen to this. Don't worry, we'll be here waiting for you.
