This article looks at the influence of the late film director Ingmar Bergman on the cinematic styles of filmmaker Steven Spielberg. Spielberg has incorporated in his films some of Bergman's homages and allusions and his encyclopedic knowledge of film is considered a significant element in his success. In the book "The Imaginary Signifier in Bergman's Persona," by Lloyd Michaels, the film was discussed using the psychoanalytic apparatus theory concerning the relationship between spectator, projector and screen. One scene in "Duel," the film debut of Spielberg, was depicted in the motion picture "Persona," which was directed by Bergman.
