SEVEN (1995) GEM, 9.30PM, AV15+, THRILLER

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - HIGHLIGHTS -

David Fincher ( FightClub) hit the big time with this bril­liant thriller. Two de­tec­tives head the hunt for a grue­some se­rial killer whose modus operandi re­volves around the seven deadly sins. As the jaded cop near­ing re­tire­ment, Mor­gan Free­man ef­fort­lessly per­son­i­fies world-weary in­tel­lect, while the cocky swag­ger of Brad Pitt’s rookie part­ner role con­vinc­ingly con­ceals his in­stinc­tual smarts. Gloomy cin­e­matog­ra­phy and classy edit­ing give new mean­ing to the term at­mo­spheric, while metic­u­lous at­ten­tion to de­tail in the grim crime scenes adds to the hor­ror. A dis­turb­ing film that will re­ward your view­ing ef­forts right up to the last minute. ★★★★
