Persona (1966)

Ingmar Bergman directs Bibi Andersson, Liv Ullmann and Margaretha Krook in this Swedish art movie where a nurse must look after a mute theatre star and begins to fill the silence with confessions.

There’s a lengthy central monologue that is erotic as fuck. Both actresses look glorious. Striking, rich black and white cinematography of places and faces from Sven Nykvist. But it is also pretentious and obtuse in the extreme. Not my cup of tea but I found pleasures in it.
