    Have you seen his last TV movies by any chance? You know, after "Fanny and Alexander" I couldn't follow to see his movies respectively.

    Are you referring to "Scenes from a Marriage"?

    No, this is before "Fanny and Alexander" as I know, but there are a couple of TV movies after, indicated in imdb. See here, under the title 'Director'. I don't know any of them.

    Yes, not strange, Bergman announced his retirement after "Fanny and Alexander", but he couldn't give it up at last, i.e. when you're truely in love, you really can't give up so easily, and for him it was cinema ... Kurosawa sent him a letter for his 70th birthday "Mr. Bergman, let's continue, let's don't stop creating something new, for Cinema's sake... !" I like this letter.

    Bad Santa....

    Despite this being my 5th-6th time watching it, I never really realized how much B.B. Thorton's character actually grows into a better person near the end of the movie.

    The Evil Dead

    A touching drama about coming to terms with mortality.

    Just as an interesting aside, my dad is friends with Sam Raimi's brother Ivan, who is a doctor in Michigan. Apparently they talk about movies all the time.

    Akira

    I hadn't watched it for about 10 years. It stands up really well. The music is absolutely great. One of the best fusions of a wide variety of styles I can think of, from the core influences of gamelan, electro and rock to subtle hints of ambient minimalism, gagaku, noh and Western classical.

    Bass Ackwards. (Yep, no kidding.) Not quite as terrible as the name should suggest, but still I couldn't finish watching it.
    When I hear John Cage’s 4’33”, I reach for my earplugs.

    Anime before anime became a damning slur.
