Definition of Bergmanesque
- … the film ends with an effusive Bergmanesque tribute to illusion.
- —David Denby, New York Magazine, 30 Mar. 1992
- Had director Don Siegel decided to reject the conventions of western narrative and allowed Wayne to survive the pell-mell shot in the back after he had killed his three adversaries, the film might have become a truly Bergmanesque dirge in dealing with the death of a legend.
- —Aaron Sultanik, Film, A Modern Art, 1986
