THE SEVENTH SEAL

The Seventh Seal / Det sjunde inseglet (1957) dir Ingmar Bergman w/Max von Sydow, Bengt Ekerot, Gunnar Bjornstrand, Bibi Andersson [96 min; 35mm; in Swedish and Latin with English subtitles]
Disillusioned and exhausted after a decade of battling in the Crusades, a knight (von Sydow) encounters Death on a desolate beach and challenges him to a fateful game of chess. Much studied, imitated, even parodied, but never outdone, Bergman’s stunning allegory of man’s search for meaning was one of the benchmark foreign imports of America’s 1950s art-house heyday, pushing cinema’s boundaries and ushering in a new era of moviegoing. – The Criterion Collection
