Well, his films are mostly humorless, superficial, psychologically
implausible and tedious.  "Cries and Whispers" would be unintentionally
funny if only it was paced faster, "Persona" is just silly and the fact
that he was able to make and release his faith "trilogy" is proof in itself
that there's no God.  And I don't remember a single car chase in any of his
movies.
