The IMDB has been asking readers to name their favorite Ingmar Bergman film in tribute to last Monday’s passing of the legendary Swedish director. So far 46% of the respondents have said they haven’t seen a Bergman film. I’m not surprised — I would have predicted that more like 60% or 70% would have said this, given the cinema literacy levels out there. 19% said that The Seventh Seal (i.e., which they know because of the much-parodied chess-playing scene) is their favorite, but 11% said they’re not Bergman fans at all. Only 0.7% picked The Silence — my favorite because it’s the sexiest.
