Happy Birthday Max!


He has played chess with death, narrated for von Trier, been the Savior, the Conqueror, an emigrant, a priest, an Allen player and a moving dad.
Today he turns 81 and we can only wait and see what else he has up his sleeve.
You can always go watch Shutter Island to celebrate him but I suggest you find your copy of The Seventh Seal, sit back and enjoy the work of one of the greatest acting masters of all time.

He was so lovely in The Diving Bell...

He was indeed. Just two scenes and he's the most haunting presence in the movie.

Just saw The Exorcist the other day on AMC - hadn't seen it in forever and had forgotten how mesmerizing Von Sydow is... sheesh - give me more horror movies like that!

Jose said...

Thank you so much Andrew! I appreciate it more given how you dislike bdays hehehe.
Hmmm as much as I'd like to think that's Max von Sydow himself I doubt it hehe, I'd explode from excitement if he actually read this!

Bring on the horror indeed, damn "Saw" movies and crap from nowadays.
