Looking pretty well for an 82 year old, and can still act circles around posers like jennifer lopez, justin timberlake, madonna, etc...

He has done so many really good films. Why only mention this crap "Robin Hood". What's about Needful things, Minority report, Dune?

If sense were common everyone would have it.    

Great actor. For those of you who have an attention span longer than a gnat's, check out 'The Greatest Story Ever Told' one day. Just incredible.

I'm probably going to burn in hell for saying this, but Max Von Sydow was the most intense and best looking actor ever to play Jesus.

They made him look really old in "The Exorcist". Would have thought he was 60 in that movie. He rocks. He would have made a good Dumbledore, along with Peter O' Toole (my first choice)...at least after the death of the great Richard Harris. Can't win 'em all, I guess. Good for him for still working. I actually thought "Robin Hood" was pretty good; but then, I'm a Russell Crowe and Cate Blanchett fan.

He also did the very famous scene were he plays chess against "the death" in Ingmar Bergman's B&W film Sjunde inseglet.

One of the finest actors alive today.
Check him in one of his earlier Swedish movies, Pele the Conqueror. It shows Hollywood what makes an actor the best in his art.

Quite a disservice to Carl Adolf von Sydow to mention his somewhat minor the "Exorcist".
The work which showed Hollywood what Art Film was, was Ingmar Bergmans's masterwork "The Seventh Seal" (Det Sjunde Inseglet: 1957) where von Sydow is the returned Swedish Crusader Antonius Block who attempts to outwit Death through games of chess.
Those too ignorant to know should watch Shutter Island- as a sample of the brilliant von Sydow.
7th Seal is compulsory viewing for Film Studies, Cinematography, Directing, Film-music composition, Acting etc at the very finest industry feeder universities: the Berklee College and the Julliard.
