Persona ★★★★★

Every psychological drama WISHES it was as transfixing as Persona. Ingmar Bergman has crafted something specular that's still engaging and awe-inspiring after multiple viewings. Honestly it's one of the most important movies ever. Almost every Bergman movie I've seen leaves me with this same feeling. Truly one of the greatest cinematic storytellers ever.

Also, I watched this in my history of film class and I was shocked by how many people (all film majors) moaned and groaned when my professor said this movie didn't have a lot of exposition. I can't believe there's some people in my class that want to make movies but won't even give groundbreaking and important movies like Persona a chance. I also heard people after talking about how awful it is, so take that as you will!
