the seventh seal
The other night I watched The Seventh Seal. I don't know. In terms of enjoyment, I give it three of five stars I guess. Ingmar Bergman is just so fantastically depressing. Why does he have to be that way? I guess because he didn't know the Prince of Peace. That, too, is depressing.
Its technically excellent, has moments of real beauty and thoughtfulness, and is better than 95% of movies. Overall, I'd say its one of those movies you should watch before you die. But don't be in too much of a hurry.
