Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
A murky, claustrophobic whodunit distinguished by its unusually literate script, stylized production design, masterful performances, and directorial virtuosity, Seven pits detectives Brad Pitt and Morgan Freeman against an unknown serial killer in a desperate race against time. Seemingly random murders, readily identifiable as the work of one man, suggest a master plan of some sort, and the pressure to divine it begins to alienate Pitt from his devoted wife, Gywneth Paltrow, herself a possible target of the phantom menace. No effect in this gut-wrenching thriller, visual or dramatic, was achieved by accident, as viewers of New Line's Platinum series two-disc DVD will learn. Four audio commentaries -- including analysis by Pitt, Freeman, and director David Fincher Fight Club -- plus a plethora of supplemental features outline the creative processes employed for Seven. Practically every scene, including an alternate ending and others deleted from the final cut, undergoes dissection in one way or another here. As this elaborate DVD package demonstrates, Seven has no equal among neo-noir thrillers. It is a viewing experience of almost unendurable intensity, and a textbook example of classic collaborative filmmaking.
