Hour of the Wolf

Hour of the Wolf ★★★★

Very few directors are this consistently excellent. I’m now 11 films through Bergman's filmography and they’ve all been capital G great. Unfortunately I found the first half of Hour of the Wolf to be a bit weak, but slowly it gets more surreal, bleak and creepy with unsettling psychological twists as the mind of our main character slowly crumbles and descends into madness - the second half is aaamazing. Being a horror film, this stands a bit out from the rest of his filmography, but here Bergman once again demonstrates his expertise over multiple genres, and it just makes me wish he made more of it.
