The Night Visitor, Dir: Laslo Benedek, 106min, 1971

So out of my random VHS choice generating exercise of last week came a couple of Max Von Sydow films from the 1970s. ¬†Sydow is a total legend, been doing it like a boss since the late 40s, and particularly noted for roles in many Ingmar Bergman films, of which I’m seeing a few this weekend, yippee!! 513 more words
