I recently sat down to watch the 1995 crime film Se7en directed by David Fincher and written by Andrew Kevin Walker, also staring two of Holly Woods best Morgan Freeman and Brad Pitt. The film is about two detectives jointly investigating a series of ritualistic murders inspired by the seven deadly sins found in the Bible, in the book of Proverbs. The seven deadly sins are as follows Pride, Envy, Gluttony, Lust, Anger, Greed, and Sloth. The murders through out the movie has to do with these seven deadly sins, for instance the first murder scene of the movie has to do with Gluttony. The victim is bound by his feet and hands and is face down in a plate of spaghetti, by the way the victim is at last 400 0 500 pounds, not a pretty site. The master mind behind these murders is played by Kevin Spacey.
Over all this movie has a nice plot to it, and also very good writing. The characters in the movie gel nicely together, i guess there is no other standard with the likes of Morgan Freeman, Brad Pitt, and Kevin Spacey as part of the cast.
The two detectives try relentlessly to find the killer, even in one scene of the movie knocking on his front door, but I’ll let you see the movie to find out what happens in that scene for those who haven’t seen the movie yet. Each murder scene is as gruesome as the next from gluttony to lust each scene gets more gruesome, sloth had to be the worst of them all.
As for the sins Anger and Envy are saved for the last scene of the movie, where the murder turns himself in and agrees to so called reveal the last two bodies to the authorities. So the two detectives drive out to a remote area where the supposed final two bodies are located accompanied by air support.
Little does Brad Pitt’s character know that he was to become the sin anger and the murder envy, as seen played out in the video below.
I would also like to talk about Morgan Freeman’s fashion in this movie, i have to admit he was pretty well dress in this movie. Thought every scene you see him with one of the following, a cardigan, a nice button down, tweed blazer, trench coat, or hat. In some instances all of those items, and they where very well arranged outfits. Who ever the wardrobe person was did a great job. Check out the pics below.
