Friday January 19 – Thursday January 25

Featured Film:

The Seventh Seal at the Seattle Art Museum

This winter’s series at SAM is a retrospective on Swedish director Ingmar Bergman, and this week, about halfway through the series, they’re playing his most famous work, in which Death stalks a returning Crusader (Max von Sydow, playing chess) and a family of acrobats. I’ve never really warmed to Bergman, one of my failings as a cinephile, I suppose, but The Seventh Seal was one of the first “art house” movies I ever saw, and it remains a personal favorite. There are other fine films in the series (a lot of people who are not me adore next week’s Wild Strawberries, for example), but if you haven’t seen any Bergman, and you only get to see one, I’d recommend this one, playing Thursday night only.
