A ty­po­graph­i­cal co­nun­drum

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - FILM -

The sev­enth fea­ture by Dar­ren Aronof­sky joins an elite list of movies that weren’t in­tended for spellcheck­ing. Some­times the stylised ren­der­ing sticks: David Fincher’s Seven is still an­noy­ingly re­ferred to as Se7en by a cer­tain class of pedant.

“There’s a rea­son that the film is lower-case. And you can find it in the end cred­its,” in­sists Aronof­sky. “The ex­cla­ma­tion is the ac­tual struc­ture of the movie. The film is kind of an ex­cla­ma­tion point, and at the end of it, there is a big ex­cla­ma­tion point.”
