(1957) dir Ingmar Bergman w/Max Von Sydow, Begt Ekerot, Gunnar Bjornstrand, Nils Poppe, Bibi Andersson [96 min] It’s difficult to overestimate the effect that Bergman’s meditation on life and death had on viewers and future filmmakers, in New York and all over the world. “As a young man, you spent pretty well the whole night after you had seen THE SEVENTH SEAL discussing it,” said British director Mike Hodges. Meanwhile, his effect on a young comic from Brooklyn was incalculable. “When the area of concern in cinema shifted from the external world to the internal,” said Woody Allen, “Bergman developed a grammar, a vocabulary to express these inner conflicts brilliantly.”
