Funhouse upload: Deceased Artiste Ingmar Bergman talks about... Deceased Artiste Michelangelo Antonioni

The fact that Bergman died within a day or so of Antonioni is certainly remarkable, as they were of course two of the remaining Old Masters of cinema (I still think of the French New Wavers — still rockin' in their 80s — as a bit younger than they). I couldn't resist putting up this bit of a 2002 TV interview in which Bergman brought up Antonioni's name while discussing the new films he would see in the cinema on Faro, the island where he lived out the latter part of his life.
