U.S., 1995, 127 min, 35mm, Dir. David Fincher, Rated R, Warner Bros.
"An intensely claustrophobic, gut-wrenching thriller." – Todd McCarthy, Variety
Homicide detective William Somerset (Morgan Freeman) is one week from retiring when he’s presented with what will be the most disturbing case of his career: a serial killer who stages grisly murders representing the seven deadly sins. Brad Pitt joins Freeman as the newly-transferred David Mills, whose cockiness and marriage to Gwyneth Paltrow will be tested by the horrors committed by the killer, played by a scene-stealing Kevin Spacey. Grim, dark, and relentlessly bleak, David Fincher’s Se7en went on to become a box office success when it premiered in 1995. The film’s famous ending almost missed the cut, having originally been part of an earlier draft rejected by New Line Cinema but Fincher (then 29 years old) and Pitt successfully lobbied to keep it. Over two decades later, audiences are still on their edge of their seats when they hear, “What’s in the box?!”
