I loved Arne Mattsson's MORIANNA, an adaptation of Jan Ekstrom's crime novel, and equally satisfying but in an entirely various vein is Lars Magnus Lindgren's SADIST, other Ekstrom book-to-film. Both have become unknown movies.SADIST was never released in America in any form. I don't know why, but it is a peculiar film that was probably designated "too Swedish" or parochial at the time.Gunnar Bjornstrand, one of Bergman's best actors, stars in the game role, at least the English-language title. He plays a doctor who heads up a hospital, around which a series of murders are occurring, giving the viewer a typical whodunit format. With many another Bergman stock company users & another talented Swedes in the cast, there is no shortage of suspects.Could it be Heinz Hopf, everytime cast perversely, and here seen eying an underage woman when not hanging out with nurse/receptionist Essy Persson, later to become one of Sweden's best sex symbols. Apparently the movie had some notoriety back in the day due to test of a body double to sex-up Essy's scenes (for export?), but the actual Swedish DVD's contents detail only a very fleeting nude stage for her.Or might the baddie be head nurse/nun Margaretha Krook, a unbelievable Ingmar graduate whose stern countenance is everytime suspect? Maybe Allan Edwall, a kooky undertaker, is up to no good? Heroine in pop clothing, Catrin Westerlund, is above suspicion, because she's attacked twice.Ake Fridell, very familiar from his starring Bergman roles of the '50s, is cast as the inevitably plodding police inspector, a role he plays with panache.This movie is entirely various in style and tone than its companion MORIANNA, loaded with black humor. The opening credits delightfully show the whole cast list, one by one, lying serenely (eyes closed) in a coffin, accompanied by church organ melody that even contains a riff from "Dixie". Cinematographer Tony Forsberg, whose career ranged from many porn movies to Gunnel Lindblom's delicious (and overlooked) SALLY & FREEDOM, provides extremely crisp, high-contrast black & white visuals -which should be usefully examined by any latter-day auteur who wants to follow in Woody's or the Coens' footsteps of reviving b&w filmmaking.Bjornstrand, as expected, dominates the proceedings in more methods than one. He gets his kicks by whipping, biting and otherwise sexually abusing three of the actresses, including fanatic fave Essy. But that doesn't create him a murderer! Director Lars Magnus Lindgren does an expert job of tastefully handling the material -suggesting things rather than being overly explicit. It's a lost art, and his movie claim to fame, 1964's DEAR JOHN, is fully forgotten, even though it was the key art-with-sex movie to launch up that store in the U.S. when imported in 1966, followed by an onslaught of such movies as I, A WOMAN, INGA, and of course I AM CURIOUS (YELLOW).
