The Seventh Seal

The Seventh Seal ★★★½

My first film from greatly respected director, Ingmar Bergman, was an odd experience. Perhaps I was simply caught of guard by Bergman's style of filmmaking. The Seventh Seal is a strange film to say the least. It has a very intriguing premise (playing a game of chess with death!), but the films execution was a bit off for me. In my opinion the apex of that premise was never reached making the film a bit underwhelming. Overall it was still good, with moments of greatness scattered throughout. 7/10
