THE SCHOOL OF PERSONA: ALWAYS SHINE

Two years ago I wrote about Sophia Takal's Always Shine (click here to read) and naturally Bergman's Persona came up on more than occasion.

To use to term coined by Miriam Bale - Always Shine is very much in the Persona Swap genre...

Putting aside the written word for a moment (along with the few initial visual comparisons I came up with), there are a lot more blatant visual similarities that got missed in my review.

Enjoy...
