Se7en (1995)

'Se7en' truly is a magnificent picture that often goes unrecognised in the film conversation. Similar to 'The Silence of the Lambs', this is a psychological thriller and horror, rather than the one to keep you up at night from jump scares. It is particularly graphic and centres around a spree of murders with motives about the seven deadly sins - hence the title of the film. It follows the story of two police officers, who are being tied to this case. Without giving much away about the film, or any more than I already have done, this film really surprised me. I was expecting high-intensity and action from start to finish, but it almost felt like a Christopher Nolan film. There was enough action to quench the viewers thirst, but predominantly orientated around dialogue. With deep character development and on-screen rapport, the whole film offers something that not many horrors do. It certainly isn't one for the kids, but it is a film that needs to be watched. I loved seeing this for the first time and hopefully it won't be the only time, I want to know more about the characters, the story, and the stuff that we don't see. I hoped for a great film, and I was delivered a fantastic film, only guilty of the "crime of passion"...
