Persona ★★★½

probably one of those movies i appreciate more than i enjoy. bergman's cold and distant style leaves me feeling just like that - cold and distant. although that's certainly intentional, it also limited my ability to fully take in all the film has to offer and it makes for a less impactful watch than i was expecting. yes, the cinematography is beautiful, the experimentation is fascinating (especially the opening), the performances are great and i love the themes explored, but in the end, i didn't really feel a whole lot. sad i didn't like it more, but perhaps a rewatch will help that.
