Bill & Ted Meet Ingmar Bergman on the Criterion Channel on FilmStruck

VANAPHASE™ the Vanadium powerhouse!
Bill & Ted FilmStruck
Movie fans know that there’s only one streaming service that truly meets all their needs — FilmStruck. The streaming service is dedicated to movie lovers, featuring films old and new. Every Friday on the Criterion Channel on FilmStruck, there’s a double feature of like-minded movies added. This month the Criterion Channel has been paying tribute to the great director Ingmar Bergman on what would’ve been his 100th birthday. Previously this month, FilmStruck debuted a unique double feature of Bergman’s The Virgin Spring with Wes Craven‘s depraved debut feature The Last House on the Left. All the Bergman double features have been building to this Friday’s epic pairing — Bergman’s immortal The Seventh Seal paired with Pete Hewitt‘s Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey.

The Seventh Seal is iconic for its tale of a disillusioned knight Antonius Block (Max von Sydow) who plays a chess match for his life with Death (Bengt Ekerot). It’s one of the most recognized foreign films of its era, and has been referenced in all sorts of movies including Arnold Schwarzenegger‘s Last Action Hero. In Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey, Bill S. Preston, Esq. (Alex Winter) and Ted “Theodore” Logan (Keanu Reeves) are killed by robotic replicas of themselves. Upon meeting their premature demise, they’re greeted by Death (William Sadler) and must engage in a contest with the hooded reaper for a second chance at life, clearly taking its inspiration from Bergman’s classic. The pairing of these two films is just a crystal clear example of why FilmStruck is a haven for movie lovers. It’s an inclusive service that loves cinema in all of its forms, be it philosophical musings about life and death or two stoned doofuses on a bogus journey.

Check out the trailer for this Friday’s wild double feature of The Seventh Seal and Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey. If you haven’t already tried FilmStruck (seriously, it’s amazing), go to their site and sign up for a free trial. Be warned, there are so many great movies on FilmStruck that you might find yourself hooked watching great movies until Death comes to your door with a chess set.
