''I met Death today. We are playing chess.''

A man seeks answers about life, death, and the existence of God as he plays chess against the Grim Reaper during the Black Plague.

"I shall remember this moment: the silence, the twilight, the bowl of strawberries, the bowl of milk. Your faces in the evening light. Mikael asleep, Jof with his lyre. I shall try to remember our talk. I shall carry this memory carefully in my hands as if it were a bowl brimful of fresh milk. It will be a sign to me, and a great sufficiency."

Few have been the times when someone says "I love you" on screen and those words resonate to the audience with the same tenacity they resonate to who they're said to in the story. Bergman's The Seventh Seal accomplishes this within it's first 15 minutes. This alone is an accomplishment worthy of applauding. The rest of the movie is such as well. Seal deals with death as a theme as extensively as C... read more

What your favorite movie (really) says about you.. (57 movies items)

"If The Seventh Seal is your favorite movie.....you pride yourself in being the smartest person in the room when it comes to film. You would rather watch a wall drip with blood of lambs to symbolize Political Repression than watch the latest popcorn flick. Indie to a T, witty and smart, you love the intellectual, and chess, and philosophy. You have a subscription to the Criterion Channel, and peruse same weekly. "

“Ingmar Bergman es un prodigio en el mundo del cine no-comercial, europeo, super niche, super anti-espectáculo y creo que ya saben a dónde quiero llegar. Su marca personal es ser sombrío, tratar temas filosóficos y psicológicos vía simbolismos y pacing lento. De no ser un entendido del medio a profundidad, con aquello que te gusta siendo la diversión nunca tendrás una tarde divertida con él. Eso es también el porqué no gusto de sus obras en comparación a la mayoría (bueno, a cierta mayoría). Las emociones son parte importante de toda obra, sin ellas no puedes cautivar a tus espectadores.

Creo que por ello aprecio más El Séptimo Sello, parcialmente cómico y depresivo, es un viaje de autodescubrimiento y un cuestionamiento religioso. Los temas son acordes dado que ” read more
