The Seventh Seal ★★★½

I know part of why this didn't really land for me is because it seemed cliche because actually this film invented all the now cliche things and I'm just coming to it too late—but also it genuinely was a contrived mess in parts and I imagine I would have also felt pretty tepid about it if I'd seen it in 1957.

Still terrified to give it any less than three and a half stars though don't drag me too hard Letterboxd okay?!
