Genius, shocking, sombre, tense, enigmatic, cruel, clever, original... this is the best film of 1995 and one of the best films ever made. It boasts a truly great and shocking ending, and i'm struggling to find a better ending in any other of the hundreds of films i've seen in my so far short life. You've got to watch it atleast twice to catch the connotations, i've seen it dozens of times and it still has the same effect. Maybe Pitt should have gotten an Oscar nom for Best Actor in 1995 for his heartbreaking performance, but hey he got nominated for 'Twelve Monkeys' didn't he? The best year of Pitts career followed by 1999 where he made 'Fight Club'.
Ah, "Seven." It was one of the key films in reintroducing the popularity of the Film Noir genre to a mainstream audience in the mid-1990s. Brad Pitt and Morgan Freeman are superb, but the script, alone, is equally as impressive. As stated by other users, the thing that stands out most in the screenplay is the ending. I don't want to give anything away...but lets just say it is definitely not your typical Hollywood ending; it's more "real," for lack of a better rule. The screenplay manages to wrap suspense, trauma, heartache, anticipation, anger, frustration, and excitement all together into an entertaining story. Definitely a movie (and screenplay) worth checking out.
