Seven deadly sins. Seven ways to die.
Two homicide detectives are on a desperate hunt for a serial killer whose crimes are based on the "seven deadly sins" in this dark and haunting film that takes viewers from the tortured remains of one victim to the next. The seasoned Det. Sommerset researches each sin in an effort to get inside the killer's mind, while his novice partner, Mills, scoffs at his efforts to unravel the case.

“Anyone who spends a significant amount of time with me finds me disagreeable.”
He has taken on too much. Det. David Mills (Brad Pitt), deliberately uprooting his wife, Tracy (Gwyneth Paltrow), from upstate and dragging her to this lurid hellhole, all out of a naïve desire to save the world. So much ambition, he nearly chokes on it. So much chatter, he sucks all the air from the room.
Det. William Somerset (Morgan Freeman) long ago saw his passion wither. He is one week from retirement, too exhausted to keep pace with the horrible goings-on around him. Like his spiritual descendant, Sheriff Ed Tom Bell (Tommy Lee Jones) in No Country for Old Men, he sees…

90% of horror films nowadays get no where near as creepy or lurid as even the credit sequence of Seven.
One of the greatest films of the 90s, without a doubt.
Se7en isn't just another 1990s movie I saw as a teenager, loved and revisted recently...I think it really stands out in a rather lackluster decade of film.
I will never forget my initial reaction to the movie, the dread I felt from each murder to the next and the ending just grabbing my heart and pulling it down into my stomach. After numerous watches in the 90s and early 2000s I had decided it was time for a much needed break. For the past few months I had been on Richard's case, telling him I was in the mood to watch Se7en, I am not even really sure what inspired it but I guess it was just time. With that…
Blazingly original, darkly disturbing, downright shocking, extremely grim, relentlessly brutal, insanely powerful & emotionally devastating, David Fincher's breakthrough feature is an intensely haunting masterpiece which today is widely & rightly counted amongst the greatest thrillers ever made, and is also notable for marking the commencement of an impressive directional career that continues to get stronger with every new film.
Taking place over the course of a week, the story of Se7en concerns two homicide detectives; the soon-to-retire William Somerset & the newly transferred David Mills, who become deeply involved in the recent case of appalling crimes relating to the seven deadly sins and desperately try to hunt down the sadistic serial killer before his mission is accomplished. The plot also covers the detectives'…
I have been thinking long and hard about it and the only flaw I can find in this film is the way the title is written. It makes no sense and is annoying.
The rest? Sheer perfection.
It is always difficult to determine when you are 'allowed' to call a film a classic or a masterpiece. To avoid that discussion let's use a term I think we can all agree on. Masterclass.
Each and every aspect of this film is executed with such a degree of perfection and dedication that it is nigh impossible to call it anything else. This is filmmaking at the highest level, a level that has not been equalled or surpassed often in the genre.
After viewing after viewing of this film, it's finally made it's mark as my favorite Fincher movie, and my favorite Pitt performance.
Extremely dark but fascinating and entertaining. Very influential on countless zero budget "suspense" movies that came after it. This one contains genuine thrills and creepiness.
Upon second viewing, Se7en is a phenomenal thriller. Brad Pitt and Morgan Freeman give excellent performances. However, the stand-out here is Kevin Spacey. While he's not in it for too long, he's still spectacular on screen.
Fincher's direction is also phenomenal. He gives the film such a realistic and frightening tone. You are 100% immersed in the film the entire time.
Btw, the twist is one of the greatest twists of all time, as with most Fincher films.
Seven - A+
twisted as hell but still a great one
Empezando a ver la filmografía de Fincher con esta excelente película. Impredecible, excepto el final, aunque sinceramente quería que no pasara algo así :(
La escena donde hablan con John en el carro me generó mucha angustia y solamente era una conversación. Oh, la magia del cine.
It might be the best movie directed by David Fincer, and that should be enough for everyone to watch this masterpiece. Dark, violent, complex and extremely powerful, Se7en is one of the best suspense movies of the 90s
Brad Pitt has an existential crisis about boxes.
"Se7en", or the less non-sensical title "Seven" is flat out brilliant, no matter the title. Morgan Freeman and Brad Pitt do some of their best work here, and the story and presentation are as gritty and dark as it gets. Engrossing.
Faultless. Fincher's best film.
Recently, I've become aware that certain films are able to transcend the medium by being completely self-assured in their atmospheres…
