We can't count the times, restless and strange, we've walked the empty city streets during those nameless hours between midnight and dawn. Ingmar Bergman captured that feeling precisely, in this nightmare sequence from Wild Strawberries. Catch the rest of the movie, as well as 1960's The Virgin Spring, at the Bergman double feature, playing tonight and Thursday at the New Beverly.
