― The Seventh Seal (1957)Block: Through my indifference for people, I’ve been placed outside of their society. Now I live in a ghost world, enclosed in my dreams and imaginings.
The 7th seal. A movie by Ingmar Bergman in which a knight plays chess for his life with death was a major inspiration for To Hell with Blackjack.
