A friend felt it was important that I see this. It was worth it for Jeff Goldblum.
Torment teams two Swedish film legends (at least, in my mind)--Victor Sjöström and Ingmar Bergman. It's a good looking, affecting film. There are some really nice atmospheric shots and some moments of genuine suspense. At one point, thunder outside fights for the attention of a room full of young men and I am reminded of Fellini and Capra.
The overall story, with the sadistic school teacher, gets a little heavy handed now and then, but it's forgivable. I look forward…
