Ingmar Bergman and His First Cinematograph

When Bergman was 8 years old he received a teddy bear for christmas while his older brother received a cinematograph, disappointed at his present and full aware his brother didn’t care at all about the cinematograph, he offered him 150 tiny soldiers in exchange, both were completely satisfied after the deal.

She’s incredibly sweet, funny, down to earth, genuine, doesn’t take herself seriously in any way shape or form. Which it’s the most honorable quality that I love in anyone. I look for that. And she has that in buckets. I think she’s really gone deeper than I’ve ever seen her. She’s the kind of person who brings in cookies and banana bread. - Andrew Garfield on Emma Stone

Self improvement is masturbation. Now, self destruction…


I know some people don’t really like this ambiguous ending, but I think it’s great. This script has fantastic screen direction from Steve McQueen and Abi Morgan executed perfectly from Michael Fassbender. I love how nothing is spoken, but we can see all the emotions described just from Fassbender’s facial expressions. The final ending is changed quite a bit, but the same idea is still there. There has been some debate as to whether he succumbs to his urges or not, but to me that’s not what’s important in this scene. I think the message that this scene gives is that because he is an addict he has to go through a struggle with himself and his urges and his emotions every time he finds himself in a similar situation. This ending shows that for his character, it’s never really over (not at least until he gets some major help) and we can tell by that last look he gives that he is disgusted and ashamed by that, but at the same time, he still can’t look away.
