Disillusioned and exhausted after a decade of battling in the Crusades, a knight (Max von Sydow) encounters Death on a desolate beach and challenges him to a fateful game of chess. Much studied, imitated, even parodied but never outdone, Bergman’s stunning allegory of man’s search for meaning was one of the benchmark foreign imports of America’s 1950s art house heyday, pushing cinema’s boundaries and ushering in a new era of moviegoing—while inserting into the cultural vernacular a longstanding duel-with-Death that would be overtly referenced from the parody of Stephen Colbert to Monty Python’s MEANING OF LIFE and BILL & TED’S BOGUS JOURNEY (screening as an unofficial sidebar at midnight Sat, Mar 10).
