Se7en (1995)

Se7en (1995, USA) C-127m. SCOPE *** D: David Fincher. Starring Morgan Freeman, Brad Pitt, Kevin Spacey, Gwyneth Paltrow, R. Lee Ermey, Richard Roundtree, Richard Schiff. Moody, oppressively atmospheric thriller about weary cop Freeman, who is about to be replaced by hot-shot Pitt, when a murder series grips the gloomy city. It seems the killer is re-enacting the Seven Deadly Sins, in ultra-disgusting fashion. Gripping cult thriller drains out almost all colors, but its plot is fascinating and so is its artistic approach. Incredibly tense finale the highlight. Score by Howard Shore, photographed by Darius Khondji. From the director of FIGHT CLUB (1999).
