"The Seventh Seal": Playing Chess with Death

Usually try to watch a couple "art films" while I'm on summer break. Have been thinking of watching this one again (other options include Bertolucci, Antonioni, Tarkovsky, Kieslowski). The copy I have also has a wonderful interview with Bergman on his island.

Anyway, though it is something of a cliche now, this image is still very powerful (IMHO).
