Persona

Persona ★★★★

Persona begins with arguably one of the greatest surrealistic opening sequence in cinema history.What follows is a study of the relationship of an artist and an audience, or a psychological study into human ontology.

The movie is elevated by outstanding performances from it's two leading ladies-Bibi Andersson and Liv Ullmann.The former one portraying a plethora of emotions while the latter speaks a thousand words playing a silent character.

Bergman's framing and close-up compositions along with avant-garde music and non-linear editing makes Persona a riveting, provocative and perplexing watch.
