Default R.I.P. Sven Nykvist

Washington Post article

One of my favorite cinematographers of all time, along with the likes of Gregg Toland, Gordon Willis, Kazuo Miyagawa, etc.

He shall be missed. Won't be much longer before Bergman goes as well, I'm sure...

I loved his work for Fanny and Alexander, in particular. He (along with Ingmar Bergman, obviously) created a whole separate world that magically managed to be both dreamlike and very real. Boy, how I love that film... (and Nykvist's cinematography)

A sad day for the World's cinema.

It might be my FAVORITE film. Top 5 anyway.

But he was Swedish, so probably a lot of the other films he worked on are famous foreign films.

Sleepless in Seattle is a famous foreign film, unlike domestic things like Fanny och Alexander.

He also worked on What's Eating Gilbert Grape. That one is pretty well known I thought. As well as The Unbearable Lightness of Being (which I really need to see). He worked on quite a few films that aren't considered foreign films.

Cool thanks for the info I haven't watched any of his other movies (besides Sleepless in Seattle), so I will be going back to Netflix and renting them out if you recommend them.

What he did with Persona is just amazing. Mind-blowing. Persona is probably my favourite Bergman movie and a large part of that is because of its brilliant cinematography. So, yeah, R.I.P.
