Becky D’Anna joins us to discuss the movie SHAME, on our first Thingmar Bergday episode in this, our 100th Year of Ingmar Bergman. We start by discussing Becky’s love for Bergman and how she got there, and then we discuss context of the movie in terms of his life, career, and the world around him. Finally we go through 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 because she’s one of the most informed people alive on the man and his movies. I was excited to have her on, and I was not disappointed. 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 episodes. And check out SHAME and listen to this. Don’t worry, we’ll be here waiting for you.
