    Ingmar Bergman, a swedish film and theater director and writer, died today. I can't really relate to him though (haven't really read/watched his works yet) but people in the industry seem to celebrate him as a genius. Might have some catching up to do there.

    Here's a list of his achievements:

    Rest in peace old man. You deserve it.

    what a bummer.
    Seventh Seal, ya. I remember the film being funnier than I thought it would be. Some great images- the flaggellants, the girl that will be burnt at the stake for causing the plague. Pretty good and not at all as high brow as I expected.

    That's sad. I really like this guy's films. Seventh Seal is the one everyone watches in film class, but Fanny and Alexander is my favorite.

    I thought he was like a million years old by now. Heh, too bad. The Seventh Seal was awesome.

    To be honest, when news of this reached me, I was kind of surprised...I thought he was already dead.

    Still, a genius and a master of the art of film-making. He will be missed.

    I never got his movies, really. All I can remember was some very un-attractive young woman slicing her pussy up like a steak.
    In an artistic way, of course, that didn't turn into your-average-day-on-the-internets.
