  1. G. Thomas Esmay's rating of the film The Seventh Seal

    10/10. Imagine a more solemn version of Chaucer. Bergman crafts numerous incredible images throughout the film (the danse macabre, the image of all the characters turning at once to spy Death are a couple of favorites), but perhaps Bergman's biggest achievement is anchoring this fantasy adventure in an all-too-real fear and death and doubt in a higher power.

  2. Dan Kenneth Gigernes's rating of the film The Seventh Seal

    A Swedish masterpiece filled with classic moments. The chess game between Death and Max von Sydow. The discussions about faith, darkness, light, love and cruelty. The dark humor. The unforgettable ending. The actors. The great dark cinematography. Isn't anything bad here I think. A true classic and the best film to get introduced into the mind of Ingmar Bergman.

    "If everything is imperfect in this world, love is perfect in its imperfection."

  5. Ben Nash's rating of the film The Seventh Seal

    Absurdly great and greatly absurd.

  6. Walker's rating of the film The Seventh Seal

    Beautiful film. Watch it and witness a true master at work

  7. Jamie Steele's rating of the film The Seventh Seal

    A masterpiece that is a must-watch for aspiring filmmakers. The death dance across the Swedish hilltops is wonderfully captured, framed and is truly affective for the audience. The meandering narrative keeps you interested all the way through.

  9. MisterColo93's rating of the film The Seventh Seal

  10. freskonthesfenks's rating of the film The Seventh Seal

    Dialogues were poetic. Characters' questioning of God was so beautiful that everyone have different thoughts about it. Acting was inspirational.

  11. Ozu_Teapot's rating of the film The Seventh Seal

  12. Philippe Lajède's rating of the film The Seventh Seal

  13. McOpinionated's rating of the film The Seventh Seal

    Stands up very well indeed - very watchable. Indeed, some time I will re-watch. Obviously 5* if you include its importance to film history, but 4* for me without that context. Some little flaws of film-making detract - some dodgy acting, the perennial problem of musical instrument playing, some crowd scenes. Gunnar Björnstrand as the sancho panza character Jöns was fabulous.

  14. Rumpus's rating of the film The Seventh Seal

  15. pykinos's rating of the film The Seventh Seal

    Stunning, chilling, and everything that was lacking in the other Bergman films I've watched to date. I'll be thinking about this for quite some time.

  16. Kevin Matthews's rating of the film The Seventh Seal

    Nothing I can say that hasn't already been said. An absolute classic from Bergman, an essential viewing experience, and a flawless mix of philosophical musings and sheer entertainment.

  17. SiIencio's rating of the film The Seventh Seal

    A Bergman in uberexistential mode delivers one of the most iconic sequences in cinema, a knight playing a game of chess with Death. Bergman considers the ultimate questions, searches for the meaning of life with death at the heels and proposes an eternal battle between Good and Evil however our deepest gratitude to him will always be for this epic and astonishing brief visual and poetic achievement.

  18. NUGA's rating of the film The Seventh Seal

    The Seventh Seal is not just a film. It transcends drama and narrative. Its a personal voyage through the depths of nothingness; meaning. It questions god, death, the absence of the self in a time where the black plague swept the world to its very core bringing emptiness to the humanity. (rest in the comments).

  19. daxterpt999's rating of the film The Seventh Seal

    A chivalry book, an unseen move. Sancho Panza braver than his master. In about 10 years, Tarkovsky will have his own seal, his own Rublev.

  20. Carolina Pereira's rating of the film The Seventh Seal

    O vazio do sentido de vida de um ser humano em forma de alegoria

  21. Maribou's rating of the film The Seventh Seal

    A charming little comedy about death. A plague is devastating the land as a knight and his squire return home after years away. Unlike most I find this film a little heavy in its handling of our responses to mortality and a loss of religious faith. The comedy is fragile and often bleak. That said the film is technically brilliant with wonderful photography and Bengt Ekerot's Death steals all the laurels.

  22. Christofi Cotonou's rating of the film The Seventh Seal

    Death is the lord of witty banter. Oddly enough, this film could have had another thirty minutes to feel complete. But a masterpiece full of metaphorical depth and novel-like layers. Berg-the-MAN.

  24. Jack Joseph Kahn's rating of the film The Seventh Seal

    Am I allowed to have an opinion of this film other than admiration? Probably not. But this is perhaps deserved.
