Ingmar Bergman’s early masterpiece, a wrenching battle of the sexes, in a new 2K restoration Ingmar Bergman (The Seventh Seal) presents the battle of the sexes as a ramshackle, grotesque carnival of humiliation in Sawdust and Tinsel, one of the master’s most vivid early works and his first of many collaborations with the great cinematographer Sven Nykvist (Persona). The story of the charged relationship between a turn‐of‐thetwentieth‐ century circus owner (A Lesson in Love’s Åke Grönberg) and his younger mistress (Harriet Andersson), a horseback rider in the traveling show, the film features dreamlike detours and twisted psychosexual power plays, making for a piercingly brilliant depiction of physical and spiritual degradation. SPECIAL EDITION FEATURES: New 2K digital restoration, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack Audio commentary by Ingmar Bergman scholar Peter Cowie Introduction by Bergman from 2003 PLUS: An essay by critic John Simon

If there’s a lesson to be learned, it’s that logic is the sworn enemy of grief, writes Halimah Marcus, co-editor of Electric Literature, in her introduction to “Firewood,” a hilarious and devastating story by J. Robert Lennon. "When the narrator’s wife (expectedly) leaves him, too devastated to admit the obvious, he concocts an impossible explanation for her disappearance. All I’ll say is that it involves the woodpile. The invented story is more horrible than the truth, but somehow easier to manage. With remarkable efficiency Lennon exposes the masochistic part of us that takes twisted comfort in worst-case scenarios." 1. Language: English. Narrator: Nicholas Techosky.
