Dreams of Desire 7 (Persona)

 

Persona-Movie-640x469[1]
Persona- 1966
Ingmar Bergmann’s stark modernist masterpiece of dissolving, merging female identities and the nature of cinema must surely influenced Lynch’s Mulholland Dr. (Dreams of Desire 6). Both movies explore the porous boundaries of personality, the projection of desires onto another (and the subsequent hatred when the other remains separate and distinct) and the illusions that we create to maintain our precarious, fabricated self-image.
