Ingmar Bergman Loses Chess Match With Death

Ingmar Bergman, undisputedly one of the greatest filmmakers of all time, has passed away at the age of 89. The atheist child of the chaplain to the king of Sweden, by 2004 he admitted that most of his films depressed him terribly. He was married five times, divorced four, and fathered at least nine children.
