Roger Ebert has posted a column containing e-mails from some of his famous acquaintances and their rememberances of the late Ingmar Bergman. My favorite is the one from filmmaker/playwright David Mamet:
"When I was young the World Theatre, in Chicago, staged an all-day Ingmar Bergman Festival. I went at ten o'clock in the morning, and stayed all day. When I left the theater it was still light, but my soul was dark, and I did not sleep for years afterwards."
