Persona

Persona ★★★★★

Perhaps the most astounding, shocking, mind-blowing movie ever made. I'm not quite sure what was real or not and I'm looking forward to finding out in future viewings, but from my first impression Persona is technically impressive, innovative, a great showcase for two incredible actresses, a feminist masterpiece, and a horror movie all in one. Frankly, it's great seeing what the true masters of the black and white medium can do with shadows and lights, after seeing the digital black and white movies of the past few years (i.e. Frances Ha, Nebraska, A Field in England). These pseudo-B&W films use the medium without utilizing its "limitations" to achieve the great visuals that Bergman and his cinematographer can get from a spotlight, a white background, and two faces.
