Top 20: Movies. Number 17

It's time to get serious.

Se7en.

David Fincher's 1995 detective film is the 17th best movie of all time. It stars 3 of my favorite actors (Brad Pitt, Morgan Freeman, and Kevin Spacey) and is meticulously directed. Detectives Pitt and Freeman hunt a serial killer who murders his victims in the style of the seven deadly sins. This is Law and Order taken to the extreme. The film starts off dark and gets even darker as we search for the killer. Even though the final sequence takes place in a wide open field on a bright sunny afternoon, it is perhaps one of the darkest sequences comitted to film in the last 20 years.

Check the trailer:


And the incredible title sequence. It sets up the tone of the film perfectly (warning! not for the squeemish):
