The legendary filmmaker Ingmar Bergman oftentimes is described as incorporating the language of existential philosophy into his films. Common in his work from the late '50s onward are characters who experience a strong sense of angst and hopelessness after questioning their faith in God (The Seventh Seal), the crumbling of their personal psyche (Through A Glass Darkly), or otherwise some sort of horrifying tragedy in their life (Cries and Whispers).
Although Bergman was a filmmaker, his personal stances on a large amount of existential topics are expounded by the characters and narratives of his films, much the same way Dostoevsky's views are found throughout his fiction. There is no shortage of film scholarship on Bergman's work, but I am wondering if any philosophers (continental or otherwise) have written on his ideas in the same way they would treat Dostoyevsky, or even Sartre's or Camus' fiction.
Have any philosophers written about Bergman's philosophy of how we as humans should cope with angst and the crumbling of personal identity? How does Bergman's analysis of these topics and offered solutions compare to those of, say, Kierkegaard, especially concerning Bergman's conception of the silence of God (The Seventh Seal)?
