Renowned director Ingmar Bergman created some of the greatest films ever made, influencing directors ranging from Woody Allen to Akira Kurosawa to Chan-wook Park. His films often dissect the abstract ideas of life, death, and faith. Unlike many directors, Bergman expressed these ideas directly. For example, in The Seventh Seal, death actually exists as a person whom the other characters interact with. In his lifetime, he was nominated for nine Academy Awards, won seven awards at Cannes Film Festival, and received the Irving G. Thalberg Memorial Award. Although he did not make any films after Fanny and Alexander (1982), he leaves behind many cinematic masterpieces and will be missed by all.
