Master Swedish director Ingmar Bergman (1918 - 2007) wrote and directed more than 60 films in his lauded career and is commonly cited as a major influence on celebrated filmmakers from Stanley Kubrick to Andrei Tarkovsky to Woody Allen. With each work, Bergman became ever more incisive and rigorous in his study of the human psyche, contributing to cinema such masterpieces as THE SEVENTH SEAL, THE MAGICIAN, THE VIRGIN SPRING, HOUR OF THE WOLF, PERSONA and later AUTUMN SONATA and FANNY AND ALEXANDER.

Italian director Sergio Leone began his career with the sword-and-sandals opus COLOSSUS OF RHODES in 1961.

This month's retrospective also includes ONCE UPON A TIME IN THE WEST and the tragicomic DUCK YOU SUCKER (aka A FISTFUL OF DYNAMITE).
