MOVIE, PLAY OR TV SHOW OF THE WEEK
If you can’t watch a film with English subtitles, than this film isn’t for you. In fact, it isn’t for everyone. It has probably been at least ten years since I’ve watched it and I just watched it again the other day. I wasn’t disappointed.
The Seventh Seal
Returning exhausted from the Crusades to find medieval Sweden gripped by the Plague, a knight (Max von Sydow) suddenly comes face-to-face with the hooded figure of Death, and challenges him to a game of chess. As the fateful game progresses, and the knight and his squire encounter a gallery of outcasts from a society in despair, Bergman mounts a profound inquiry into the nature of faith and the torment of mortality. One of the most influential films of its time, The Seventh Seal is a stunning allegory of man’s search for meaning and a work of stark visual poetry.

MUSIC OF THE WEEK
I’m sorry if I am turning any of you off with this presidential campaign speech, but since so many are posting political messages I thought why not.
Never Gonna Give You Up
