Product description


"Utilizing a Freudian framework, Daniel Humphrey sets as his task the lensing of Ingmar Bergman's oeuvre through queer theory, and the result isn't simply a series of close readings which reveal Bergman's "queer work," but a deeper investigation into how hagiographic cinephilia has prevented many canonical films and filmmakers from receiving a proper evaluation. Instead of continually lauding the usual suspects, Humphrey calls for more complex approaches to individual films in asking how its components reflect the larger aims of a given filmmaker. Moreover, Humphrey's analysis primarily focuses on less-discussed Bergman films, such as 1944's Torment and 1968's Shame, which is an added delight." - Clayton Dillard, Slant Magazine
