I would beg to have anyone find fault in Se7en, which is as close to perfection in the Suspense / Thriller sub-genre as any film has gotten since The Silence of the Lambs. With dank, musty sets shot in cool blues and greens, the design of the film maintains a high level of grit and disgusting reality that compliments the theme beautifully. Brad Pitt and Morgan Freeman each offer excellent performances, but for my taste Kevin Spacey takes the role a little over the top, making the killer unnaturally evil and awkward. The plot is intelligent, clever, and intricately constructed, while never compromising its integrity by feeling contrived or portraying events that are outside of the realm of reality. Im cutting this one short because the film does not need a defense, it is an excellent piece of filmmaking that transcends the genre and has a mass appeal to film fans at large. A rookie detective joins a seasoned veteran on a case involving a series of murders based on the seven deadly sins.
