After a lifetime of flogging the demons of cosmic despair, Ingmar Bergman, at 88, comes off as lean and vigorous in this fascinating memoir-interview. Much of Bergman Island was shot on Faro, the Swedish island that has been his home since 1961, and beyond the glimpses into his daily existence (at times, this could almost be the cineaste Cribs), the film catches Bergman in an unusually candid mood. He offers confessions (”I was family-lazy,” he says with a grimace), reflections on his love affairs with Liv Ullmann and Bibi Andersson, and hardheaded nuggets of insight into the shooting of his classics.
