On Movies: 'This Is 40' by Judd Apatow: First he watched Ingmar Bergman
Posted on Sunday, Dec 16, 2012
It's almost like Ingmar Bergman's Scenes From a Marriage, Judd Apatow's This Is 40.
"In fact, before I made the movie I watched Scenes From a Marriage, which actually has a lot of humor in it," says Apatow, whose own chronicles of domestic discord - the stormy to-and-fro between men and women, or man-boys and women - have become a brand unto themselves. The 40-Year-Old Virgin, Knocked Up, and now, This Is 40.
