Is Max Von Sydow A Good Actor?

I know him mainly as Father Merrin (The Exorcist) in The Exorcist (1973), he is very good in it, he was aged for that film, in fact he now looks like he used to in that film. Strangely and I don't see how he could, but he reprised the role in The Exorcist II: The Heretic (1977) For a long time I knew him... show more I know him mainly as Father Merrin (The Exorcist) in The Exorcist (1973), he is very good in it, he was aged for that film, in fact he now looks like he used to in that film.

For a long time I knew him because of playing Ming in Flash Gordon (1980)

He has been in over 100 films, done a lot of films for Ingmar Bergman.
Update: He isn't the best actor in The Exorcist franchise, I say Richard Burton is the best, he was the lead in the sequel The Exorcist II: The Heretic (1977), though it is apparently a dreadful film.
