Magician, The: The Criterion Collection

The Magician (Ansiktet), directed by Ingmar Bergman (The Seventh Seal, Fanny And Alexander), is an

engaging, brilliantly conceived tale of deceit from one of cinema's premier illusionists. Max von Sydow (The Virgin Spring, The Exorcist) stars as Dr. Vogler, a mid-nineteenth-century traveling mesmerist and peddler of potions whose magic is put to the test by a small town's cruel, eminently rational minister of health, Dr. Vergerus (Wild Strawberries' Gunnar Bjornstrand ). The result is a diabolically clever battle of wits that's both frightening and funny, shot in rich, gorgeously gothic black and white.
