I watched Reefer Madness for the first time ever on Showtime Beyond tonight.
Last night I watched Ingmar Bergman's The Seventh Seal, in which
well-past-his-prime New Wave rocker Stinga knight returning from the Crusades challenges Dwight Eisenhower dressed as "Brain Guy" from Mystery Science Theater 3000Death to a chess match. I had had a preconception of this picture as ponderous, "art-House" stuff, but it turned out to be quite quick-moving and watchable. I kept looking for a "message" in this picture, mostly because of a residual feeling I always had that "important foreign movies always have deep messages", but if there's a message deeper than "We're all gonna die someday and it's gonna suck and no one knows whether God and/or the Devil are real or not, but they proabably aren't", I don't know what it would be. It's well worth a watch, though, plus it's been "quoted" a million different times in a million different ways, so you may as well see what started it all.
