    • Ingmar Bergman
      When Jay is driving the truck back to New York the only stop he regrets not being able to make is when he passes a booth that says, "Meet Ingmar Bergman for 25 cents!" Ingmar Bergman was a Swedish film maker that wrote and directed the classic films The Seventh Seal, Persona, and Wild Strawberries. He was known for his use of facial close-ups and dynamic use of light and darkness. His visual style was considered so ground-breaking that the term "Bergmanesque" was coined to reference it when used in other film makers' works.
