Watching the Directors...


How fucking awesome is this image...?

Ingmar Bergman checks out one of the three prop Bruce's used in Spielberg's JAWS 1975.

What a brilliant photograph and I wonder what Bergman was thinking when he fiddled with those shark choppers... Perhaps, "Jävlars, en sån här skulle man ha i nästa film" [Bugger, I should use one of these in my next film!] and that might be why his next film Ansikte mot Ansikte (Face to Face) 1976 also used the metaphor of a normal everyday human going up against his/her most profound fears...
