Did not enjoy this at all,
This review is from: The Seventh Seal [DVD]  (DVD)
I have been trying to watch some of the so called movie classics in recent years.
Some I have loved (The Seven Smarai) and some I am afraid that I have just not been able to conect with.
This is one of those. To me this is a very arty farty, self indulgent piece of very boring cinema.
I was sad after I watched it because it is supposed to be so great and ground breaking etc
If you are strongly in the arthouse crowd I think you will enjoy this, but not if you want something intersting to happen.

I would encourage you to stick with it and try watching it again several times until you do connect with it. There have been many such experiences in my life with both film and music, when at first I just didn't get it, but as time passed and I got to know the material better and suddenly something clicked. Great art can be like that.

If you didn't enjoy The Seventh Seal, you probably have never contemplated the big questions about faith, life and death.

Anyone who describes anything as "arty farty" deserves nothing but derision - he probably found Die Hard culturally challenging.

Bassnick beat me to it . . when I read or hear someone use the term "arty farty," or its more popular cousin, "artsy-fartsy," I'm out. The words we use tell others a lot about ourselves, and I'll leave at that. I love the line " . . I think you will enjoy this, but not if you want something intersting to happen." Because, of course no-one in the "arthouse crowd" likes "interesting things" to happen on screen.
I do take issue with the unnecessary potshot at John McClain. I'm up for a Bergman/Die Hard double feature any time. Spice of life, my friends. Yippee ki yay, kille som har sex med sin mor.
