Just A Movie Review

MOVIE REVIEW! The Seventh Seal. This is an early movie by famed Swedish director Ingmar Bergman. It is a little rough around the edges, but that could have just been because I watched the movie with the English sound track. The original film is in Swedish. So the translation may have lost some of the effect and could account for the "rough around the edges" feel to the movie.

Anyway, a knight in the crusades returns home to Sweden just in time for the height of the black plague. He ends up engaging death in a game of chess. Death obliges the request because death seems to really like chess.

There is way more to the film than this of course. The knight doubts his faith. There is the plague. Lots of characters in the film question the existence of God. And then there is another reason the knight challenges death to the chess match. He has something to do, and is in fact stalling death to get it done.

All in all, a good film. A little rough on the edges, but still a good film. For as old as it is, and a foreign film, to be dubbed in English and released on DVD it has to not suck. If it was horrible, it would never have been restored and released. 4 tail whips.

Nothin else on the plate for today. I got a case of the blahs. Nothing AT ALL going on. Being bored actually sounds like fun.

I've never seen it, but I've heard that it's one of the best movies ever made. I've read that the message is not to look for definitive answers, since nothing is guaranteed to be as it might appear.

I had the blahs recently. I'm good now. Play with fire. That helps.

It was a good movie. That is a good summary of the theme. It was worth watching.
