Winter Light vs. The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari



Bergman's crisis of faith chamber drama vs. the quintessential German Expressionist horror film. Either of these deserve the nod, for lots of different reasons, but my personal preference has to go with the Expressionist classic.

Winter Light is great, but I wouldn't call it "Top Bergman". I think Dr. Caligari is the better of the two.

I absolutely would call Winter Light "Top Bergman". And though I've only seen Caligari once, I didn't latch on to it like I thought I would. I think Winter Light is the best stripped down drama ever made.
