Jim L (gb) wrote: For a low budget film, this is a really good movie. The story was interesting enough and the acting was great. I think the plot was basic, but the director did a good job of telling the story even if it was very simple. I was really happy I watched this film!
Nick A (us) wrote: Points for the people from make-up and the dressing department. It compensates not enough the terrible acting, the leaking plot, and the total pointlessness. If there's nothing else, then this movie is okay. In the other case, just leave it.

Eric F (nl) wrote: Those who have seen a fair number of Ingmar Bergman's films will certainly be aware of his peculiar preoccupation with death - a fear he's exercised in films like "The Seventh Seal". In one of the interviews of "Bergman Island", Bergman proclaims that "not a day has gone by in my life when I haven't thought about death". Bergman died in 2007, not long after this film was released, and it serves as both a farewell and a testament to his efforts. Bergman says, in one of his last interviews with a great deal of confidence, that he would meet his last wife, Ingrid, in the afterlife. For a man who was so troubled by death throughout his career, we get the sense that he finally settled down and accepted it in his last few years.When "Fanny and Alexander" was released in 1982, it was said to be the swan song for Bergman. He, of course, continued to make a number of television films thereafter, with the last of his works being 2003's "Saraband". In the last years of his life, Bergman lived a quiet life on the island of Fr, a setting that frequently appeared in his films (such as "Persona", "Hour of the Wolf", "Shame", and "Through a Glass Darkly"). In "Bergman Island", director Marie Nyrerd's visits Bergman on Fr to study the man and complete an intimate look at the world renowned director.Nyrerd is not easy on Bergman. The director had four wives before Ingrid, and a total of nine children. Bergman mentions his immaturity, claiming that he didn't leave puberty until the age of 58, and sorrowfully reveals that the suffering he feels having neglected his families cannot amount to what they have gone through. "I haven't put on ounce of effort into my families", Bergman says.The film isn't all so dark, however. Parts of it serve as an odd take on MTV Cribs - Bergman guides us on a tour of his home, revealing things like his favorite place to sit by the fireplace. He mentions walking through the long halls at night, completely alone, and the strange memories and hallucinations spurred by a life of such desolation. Although frequently going days without human interaction, he still lead an active life at 88 - the rituals of a morning walk and afternoon screenings at his theater are, as he cites, necessary. For a man who constantly pushed the limits artistically, he understands his need for boundaries and familiarity."Bergman Island" isn't flashy in it's production. There is some archival footage, not much, and the rest is compiled through a series of extended interviews between Nyrerd and Bergman. Those unfamiliar with Bergman's work may find it a bit dull, but film-lovers and students of film should find the interviews both insightful and incredibly revealing.

Mark L (us) wrote: A deliciously bad after-school-special-styled romp about rich kids that play RPGs and have horrible parents who screw them up badly. This movie is a classic stinker and totally worth watching if only to witness Tom Hanks caution one of his dungeon-roaming cohorts to "beware the sacrilege" as they inspect a creepy skeleton prop. Also, this movie proves that the kid from Meatballs wasn't just a figment of my imagination, he really did exist.
