An Introduction to "Cries and Whispers"
by David Lynch

This writing by Ingmar Bergman is truly extraordinary. It reads like pure poetry. Such intelligence—such grace—such a command for telling stories with film that catch all aspects of life. With what is like mathematical precision, Bergman describes the impossible-to-describe abstractions that make up life—the dreams—the emotions—the joy—the torment—the moods of place—the light—the sounds—the complex personalities—all conjured by his words and made as real as an apple in the hand. This kind of thing is so special, so profound, and should serve as a grand inspiration for filmmakers working today.
