From Library Journal
In the literature of film, another book on Swedish director Bergman hardly seems necessary. Gado claims his massive study approaches Bergman as a literary filmmaker, one with recurring characters, themes, and preoccupations. Hardly an original notion, and fortunately, one Gado doesn't dwell on too long. This is a readable, exceptionally thorough analysis of Bergman's output, breaking little new ground but covering the old territory with style and grace. Recommended for larger collections or those with a hole where their Bergman books should be. Thomas Wiener, formerly with "American Film," Washington, D.C.
