Ingmar Bergman, the great Swedish film director. has passed away. I have always found his films to be difficult to watch, always knowing, though, that I was watching a master at work. My two favorite Bergman films are Wild Strawberries, an elegiac examination of the tender nostalgia of an old man, and The Seventh Seal, a knight’s encounter with death (played by the great Max von Sydow).
