Max Von Sydow, such an iconic presence in cinema for seven decades, it seemed like he'd always be with us. He changed the face of international film with Bergman, played Christ, fought the devil, pressed the HOT HAIL button & was Oscar nominated for a silent performance.

I've always believed this is the single greatest framed shot in film history. Max Von Sydow as Father Merrin approaching the house in The Exorcist where the devil awaits. The whole movie is told in this single frame. Just brilliant.— Mike Glenn (@mrglenn) March 9, 2020
