    I was in the mood for a rewatch anyway but I didn't expect to rediscover the film. When I first watched it was with French audio and English subtitles. Thanks to the Criterion Channel I learned about Marker's intentions and how he wrote alternative texts and wanted viewers to see it in the language they were more familiar with. It was amazing to revisit it in this brand new way.

    The treatment of the subjects is rather vignette via interview, but it does tie together into one unifying theme that could address the concerns of many of those Bergman inteviewed in his adopted home.  Having seen Bergman Island before, it’s great to see his perspective on the place and the people. It’s also fascinating to watch in hindsight knowing there’s a followup ten years later, making it somewhat like the Up series.

    Gender Revolution: A Journey with Katie Couric


    It's a sprawling topic, which makes it hard to hold together. However, it was informative, and clarified some things I wondered about. It can communicate with the uninitiated, and as per usual makes a mockery of prejudice through science. However, some of the sociological insights, especially from other cultures, are what is most telling. Some of the subjects' stories are quite moving and communicate volumes.
