This startling work is a thinking man's horror film and a symbolic self-portrait of one of the great filmmakers: Ingmar Bergman, who thought of cinema as the ultimate illusionary art form. Max von Sydow plays a wandering magician whose bag of tricks turns him from magician to savior, then to con man and finally to artist extraordinaire. This early Bergman film is a fascinating story of the supernatural and the clash between truth and illusion, using subtle vintage special effects to underscore cinema's power to influence.
