In March 8 2020 Swedish actor Max Von Sydow passed away, he was 90 years old.

During a career that lasted for 70 years, Von Sydow appeared in over 100 titles, both in American and European films, his work included many collaborations with Ingmar Bergman, and he was nominated, among many accollades, for two Oscars and two Golden Globes.

In an interview with The Guardian Martin Scorsese described him as "something like a consummate actor, with a pride in his art and a dedication to his craft that I've encountered in very few people in my life"

As a homage to Von Sydow's career tell us which is your favorite Max von Sydow performance?

Pencho15,

Thanks for creating this poll. It's really hard to choose given Max von Snydow's long and amazing career.

1st choice: As Father Merrin in The Exorcist (1973)
2nd choice: As Jesus in The Greatest Story Ever Told (1965)

As the knight Antonius Block in The Seventh Seal. Did you know, by the way, that the late (and great) Scott Walker had written song about this movie? https://youtu.be/jMUk1R_fKEA

'Great memorial poll. 'What a tough decision: I have it narrowed down to 'Through the Glass Darkly,' 'The Greatest Story Ever Told,' and 'Seventh Seal.' I love the images that you chose.
