    Probably the best known current Swedish filmmaker, his films are made with vitality combining documentary techniques with brisk editing. A socially conscious filmmaker, his films reflect life in contemporary Sweden and Europe.

    I found this quote amusing since we like to make lists too, and apparently I have similar taste in music:

    "The only problem is that everyone then says that Bergman is like my father, which is not true. If anything, I'm more like his grandson than his son. My generation are not very affected by him. I was putting together a list - just because I like lists - of the things that have influenced me most in my life. And at number one was the Cure. At two, three and four were Swedish music and writers you won't have heard of. And Morrissey was at number five. I tried to put some films in there but the first director was David Lynch at number eight, and that was more because of Twin Peaks than anything else. So you see, Bergman really was not a major influence."

    1. Lilja 4-ever - A- (Extremely powerful depiction of forced prostitution and the sex trade but my favorite part was his depiction of Heaven as a place where you can play basketball as much as want)
    2. Fucking Amal aka Show Me Love - B+ (Emotionally honest "teen angst" film from the female POV, with likeable, realistic characters, if a bit heavy-handed in its finale)

    3. Mammoth - B

    4. Together - B
    5. A Hole In My Heart - D-

    "Terrorists" a documentary on the Gotheberg protests, sounds interesting.
