(David Fincher, 1995, United States, 127 minutes)
Taking what it wants amongst crime thriller tropes and disregarding the rest, David Fincher’s Seven remains one of the most transgressive Hollywood movies of the modern era. Here Morgan Freeman plays the jaded Detective Somerset, soon to retire and trying to solve one last big case, but he’s unhelpfully paired with the hotheaded young Detective Mills (Brad Pitt). Together they chase a serial killer who connects his murders by targeting people who brazenly break one of the seven deadly sins.
