The Magic Lantern: An Autobiography:

Review:

" Bergman' s minute recall is essentially, astonishingly, visual. Description after description stamp out scenes from his films. The man, his memory, his work are one. . . . It is wonderfully liberating to be made privy to the tangible relish in his craft . . . "The Magic Lantern" is no conventional autobiography, more a scalding stream of consciousness from the pen of a licentious puritan." " -- New York Review of Books"

It succeeds--exactly as he wanted it to: The Magic Lantern is as personal and penetrating as a Bergman film, wry, shadowy, austere--Stanley Kaufman "New Republic "
