NATHANIEL R in Cinematography, Cries and Whispers, Hit Me With Your Best Shot, Ingmar Bergman, Oscars (70s)

Tuesday night meansBest Shot.This week we're looking at Ingmar Bergman's biggest success stateside both at the box office and with Oscar voters.IfCries and Whispersis not quite his most famous classic today, it remains one of the true essentials within his celebrated filmography.This mysterious and utterly gorgeous film won Bergman's longtime DP Sven Nykvist the first of his two Oscars for best cinematography.It concerns three sisters, one of whom is dying, and the family's maid.Naturally it's very depressing.But great art always transcends.

If you're running late with your choice for Best Shot, take heart and finish watching.My own entry in this "best shot" party will be up tomorrow so yours can be too.I have a good excuse.Today I finalized all the prep work for both the '73 Smackdown festivities (running from Thursday to Saturday here) and all the bookings for this year's Toronto International Film Festival so that you can be assured coverage of that festival this year.This year I'll be staying for the entire festival so there will be more coverage than even last year.I'm so happy about that I practically broke into a hearty round of "O Canada".

But Canada can wait.Tonight we head to Sweden for an unmissable classic...
