Ingmar Bergman‘s one true stab at gothic-horror is Hour of the Wolf, and it’s unfortunate he didn’t try his hand at the genre more often. In films like Persona (1966) and Shame (1968), Bergman’s art-house sensibilities and ascetic style often resulted in scenes shrouded by truly nightmarish and dread-laden imagery. Indeed, traces of the genre are found in even the more “delicate” films of the director (for instance, the still-creepy opening dream sequence in Wild Strawberries (1957)). The Search for Sanity, directed by Greg Carson, dives specifically into Hour of the Wolf and its legacy. Re-visiting Bergman’s sharp eye for such ghostly, puzzling, and outright beautiful scenes continues to make a strong case for it being one of the great “what-if” films.
