    What an incredible actor. Such a towering presence.

    RIP.
    Why would anybody watch a scum show like Videodrome? Why did you watch it, Max?

    R.I.P. MAX VON SYDOW. He was perhaps the finest living actor until today. 90 years old. An absolutely remarkable career ranging from his brilliant work in Sweden with Ingmar Bergman to his English works in GREATEST STORY EVER TOLD and THE EXORCIST to his fine run as simply one of the great International acting legends. Far too many roles to highlight but his performance in PELLE THE CONQUEROR (1987) propelled that film to the Best Foreign Language Oscar. When he was nominated for EXTREMELY LOUD AND INCREDIBLY CLOSE he got a standing ovation from his peers at the nominees lunch that went on for minutes. They knew. He was the best.

    Guy could do THE SEVENTH SEAL and STRANGE BREW and bring a monstrous amount of class to each film. RIP.

    The last proper actor this country ever produced, and an upstanding gentleman of a human being as well. RIP.
