Cheating Death – Chess Match in Seventh Seal [EOL in Art 93]

Ingmar Bergman’s 1957 film “Seventh Seal” is a classic of world cinema.  Knight Antonius Block return after fighting in the Crusades. On the beach immediately after his arrival, Block encounters Death. 

Block challenges Death to a chess match, believing that he can forestall his demise as long as the game continues. Like many in US hospitals today, Block tries to cheat death even though that is obviously futile.
