Prison (1949)

Ingmar Bergman directs Doris Svedlund, Birger Malmsten and Eva Henning in this experimental arthouse drama where a filmmaker recreates his friend’s desperate union with a prostitute.

An exploration in sin, misery, corruption and solace. Only really worth watching for some of the meta moments toying with subverting cinema. For example – the credits are read aloud over a tracking shot of a high street. A doodle scribble of movie, a grim one at that.
