The life of a superhero is often an anxiety-riddled mess — so it's only appropriate that a classic DC hero gets a pretentious, art house adaptation.

Filmmaker Patrick Willems has graced us with a peek into a world where Swedish director Ingmar Bergman (the man behind the brooding classics Persona and The Seventh Seal) was allowed to direct a Flash movie. When you think about it, it's not substantially weirder than Tim Burton directing Batman.

Here's hoping they get around to Lars Von Trier's Green Lantern.
