How much you want to bet the the people who did the despicabe The Longest Day Blu-ray never saw this release last year. Maybe its just too boring to watch a 1957 Black and White classic movie. Way out of their demographics?


Even after The Longest Day there is still confusion on how excessive DNRs ruins the art of film. It destroys the image. It looks nothing like what the film makers wants it to look. Much like the pan and scanning of home video releases. The Seventh Seal did not suffer any of this nonsense. A big improvement over the Criterion DVD release. An excellent job and they should be commended for it. There is some frames/scenes were you can still see scratches and dust. The scene where Death first sat down to play chess is one example. Maybe in the future better technology may be able to completely get rid of them.


" Oh S***!, Its Black and White! And its too grainy! Why do I get to restore these boring movies?! F*** it, I will just dial this DNR machine to 11 maybe it will be better PQ (sic). Yesss!!! much better. All I need to do now is to set my uncalibrated LCD to "torch" mode and it should look as good as those CGI cut scenes from that videogame I played. Wohoo! "

So this is the UK Tartan import then... I guess I will be waiting (and waiting...) for the Criterion release.


Thanks for bringing this great movie to attention



Black Narcissus would be the logical next step

Is the UK release region free? I was going to buy it.


Ah, Black Narcissus. Arguably some of the best cinematography ever put on film!

There's an Ingmar Bergman film on BD and this is how I find out?


You would think there would be a little more excitement.


edit-Bergam(combination of my idiocy and the computer) to Bergman.

Who is Ingmar Bergam?



I would guess that the excitement is somewhat tempered by the fact that you can't buy it in the states, and it will cost around $50 to import.

Just be happy you dont understand the dialouge in its native form, its sounds a bit like any slapstick movie that was produced in the same area (it even uses the same slapstick actors in some parts)


But I agree that its great cinematography, and Max has something special that makes him stand out. And that Death-guy looks creppy (and something filmmakers should lern from since they didnt need any advanced or gory makeup to do it.)
