The Seventh Seal (1957)

The Seventh Seal is a 1957 Swedish historical fantasy film written and directed by Ingmar Bergman, it has become an icon in cinema becoming a veritable shorthand for arthouse cinema and inspiring countless homages and parodies, meaning it has cemented itself in social consciousness. The film itself tells the story of a medieval knight (Max von Sydow), who after returning from the Crusades finds his homeland devastated from the Black Death, and when finding Death (Bengt Ekerot) waiting for him undergoes a crisis of faith and challenges him to a literal game of chess. We also spend sometime talking about Sound of Metal, the Meg, Sliding Doors, Minari, Adam Curtis and the Lady and the Dale.
