[Bibi Andersson] will be dearly missed, and I will never forget her magnificent turn in what I’d put at #1 in my all-time-best list of movies, Persona.
Bergman seems to have fallen out of fashion in some circles, yet the reputation of Persona continues to grow, I predict that in 2022 it will crack the Sight and Sound Top 10 (it was #17 in 2012). And Andersson’s (and Ullman’s) performance is one of the greatest in film history.April 22, 2019 at 8:34 am #1202861952

John Singleton has died from a stroke at 51.April 29, 2019 at 12:41 pm #1202872644
Damn, I had read recently about how he was in a coma.April 29, 2019 at 1:08 pm #1202872694
Singleton is being taken off life support, according to his family, but none of the major outlets like Variety, The Hollywood Reporter, Deadline, etc. have actually reported that he’s died yet. But it’s obviously only a matter of time.
