Fifth about The Seventh

Duel (1971)

DuelDuel: in spite of just a sliver of a story, this film is very rich in tension and mood, a very well crafted thriller. It’s a masterclass in editing and shot selection throughout most of the action; the tension is kept throughout most of the film with smart cuts. Character building and, to a lesser extent acting get the same attention that the story did; that’s not the point, however.
