The Seventh Seal and Bergman Island

Ingmar Bergman's 1957 morality play about a knight playing chess with Death never had such clarity as in Criterion's Blu-ray edition. The big extra (also sold separately) is a 2003 docu-chat showing Bergman talking frankly about his films, his many women and, of course, God and death.
