Twenty years ago today I bought a house. I’ve still not decorated some of the rooms properly.
This is the last film on the list that I’ve seen before, so from here on in it’s uncharted territory.
I watched this a number of years ago on DVD and remember not being overly impressed, but the 3+ hour running time might have had something to do with that.
A film I know absolutely nothing about, and which was chosen tonight purely for it’s running time.
The longest film remaining on the list clocking in a 3 hours 49 minutes, so it’s a fairly early start to get it all in in one evening.
I have seen it before, but have so far resisted re-watching it due to the rather daunting length.
That’s The Seventh Seal to you and me.
All I know about this is that it’s the inspiration for the famous Death scenes in Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey.
This is one of very few films where the entire cast were nominated for an Oscar for their performance.
A near soul-crushingly long film coming in at a shade under 3.5 hours, and it’s not even the longest film on the list.
