Ingmar Bergman, one of the world's most influential -- and revered -- directors of the century died today (Monday) on Faro Island, Sweden at the age of 89. The cause of death was not immediately disclosed. Woody Allen once called him "probably the greatest film artist, all things considered, since the invention of the motion picture camera." In its obituary, the New York Times took note of the fact that critics regarded Bergman as "one of the directors -- the others being Federico Fellini and Akira Kurosawa -- who dominated the world of serious film making in the second half of the 20th century."
