Why is this genius?
I know that the fact of liking (adoring) Bergman make someone look smart and deep but I don't get it. For me this story may be deep and it would have made a good play but I haven't seen one shot where the point of view of the camera expressed some directing. It was very talkative to me and the editing was quiet flat too... When I think that Alfred Hitchcock (who has ever been looked down during his life time) released "Psycho" one year before this.
I know that those directors are very different and hardly comparable but still if you put the story away and just look at the way the director shot it I don't understand where is the genius of Bergman.
Can someone please explain me?
And please, there's no need to insult me or to get angry, I'm not saying Bergman is a bad director I just don't get it and would be happy if I could appreciate him :)
