Just learned today about Max von Sydow’s death at age 90 on March 10 (time moves so strangely right now). I’m going to celebrate him by working on @itswilwheaton’s blanket while watching the director’s cut of The Exorcist: 11 extra minutes, includes more exposition with his character, Father Merrin. He was 43 when he filmed it (5 years younger than I am now) and the aging makeup was so phenomenal that, in his old age, he looked the same as he did as Merrin. I haven’t decided if I’m going to watch it, or watch it with Friedkin’s commentary. Both are a sublime experience.
