SE7EN (1995 U.S.) D: DAVID FINCHER W: ANDREW KEVIN WALKER P: PHYLLIS CARLYLE/ARNOLD KOPELSON
The second feature from the director of ALIEN 3 may remind you of some Italian gialli (the kind of whodunnits that Argento makes). Brad Pitt and Morgan Freeman are a couple of Detectives investigating a chain of brutal murders patterned after the seven deadly sins. Many critics felt this surprising, top-notch thriller to be too dark and disturbing, but major Hollywood releases could do with a healthy dose of (non mean spirited) cynicism like this more often. With Kevin Spacey, Gwyneth Paltrow, Richard Roundtree, R. Lee Emrey, John C. McGinley, Richard Portnow, Mark Boone Jr., Leland Orser, Richard Schiff, Richmond Arquette, Charles S. Dutton and an opening credit sequence that's been copied many times. It was spoofed by the Japanese SM SE7EN the following year.
