In all honesty... I think the Seventh Seal is extremely overrated (especially out of Bargeman's whole filmography). Wild Strawberries and Persona (my personal favorite) is significantly better. Perhaps it's one of those films that needs like 3+ viewings and a deep philosophical analysis before understanding it but I just don't have the patience for that.
Not exactly a classic, but I think Gangs of New York is the most overrated Scorsese movie and falls short of just about every film he's ever made.
Both The Seventh Seal and Gangs of New York are still superb films but they fall short of the other films in the directors filmographys. Great thread op, looking forward to others opinions.
