Depressed and disappointed are the two words that describe my spirits right now. One of the main things causing these two feelings is the fact that I am going to have to miss Christina Lindberg's appearance at the Cinema Wasteland Convention this weekend. Last year when it was announced I promised myself I wouldn't miss it, but luck just hasn't been with me as of late and circumstances have made it an impossibility. Anyone who might be going who would want to become one of my instant best friends for life can hook me up with an autographed photo (by the way I am not joking, please spot a brother a picture) if they have it in their hearts.
To celebrate a historic appearance I must miss here is a tribute to Christina's most legendary film. Ingmar Bergman's one time assistant director Bo Arne Vibenius' Thriller - en grym film is still quite unlike any film ever made. Part hard exploitation film, part art-film and all around unique, Vibenius' film is one strange and disturbing experience. It's also totally unforgettable and much of this is due to Christina Lindberg's mesmerizing turn as One-Eye, surely one of the most iconic performances in all of modern cinema. Enjoy the stills and, once again, brighten a blogger's day next week with an inscribed photo from the unmatchable Lindberg.
