Ingmar Bergman's Persona is a surrealistic masterpiece, best watched late at night, in a dark room. The film has a very strange, nightmarish prologue that perfectly sets the tone of paranoia needed to appreciate the story that follows. An actress has inexplicably gone mute. A nurse is assigned to take care of her, and through the all-too-short time frame of the film, as we get inside the nurse's thoughts, through her stories, we also get inside the actress's mind. Are the women really all that different? The answer lies in their minds, and your own. Powerfully driven by two fantastic leading ladies, be sure not to miss Ingmar Bergman's beautifully composed Persona.
