Dear Mr. Bergman,

You have most certainly received enough acclaim and success

throughout the world to make this note quite unnecessary, but

for whatever it’s worth, I should like to add my praise and

gratitude as a fellow director for the unearthly and brilliant

contribution you have made to the world by your films (I have never

been in Sweden and have therefore never had the pleasure of seeing

your theatre work). Your vision of life has moved me deeply, much

more deeply than I have ever been moved by any films. I believe

you are the greatest film-maker at work today. Beyond that, allow

me to say you are unsurpassed by anyone in the creation of mood and

atmosphere, the subtlety of performance, the avoidance of the obvious,

the truthfullness and completeness of characterization. To this

one must also add everything else that goes into the making of a

film. I believe you are blessed with wonderful actors. Max von Sydow

and Ingrid Thulin live vividly in my memory, and there are

many others in your acting company whose names escape me. I wish

you and all of them the very best of luck, and I shall look forward

with eagerness to each of your films,

Best Regards,

Stanley Kubrick.


May the force be with you!
