One of my favorite things about watching a lot of movies and being in love with movies is seeing how they influence each other. I remember watching SEVEN when it first came out and it blew me away. The opening credits were especially awesome. It was like a Brothers Quay film, but in a mainstream movie! The other thing was just how gritty and fresh it felt. It's kind of hard to explain it now, since SEVEN (like it's opening credits sequence) has been cloned endlessly since then, but at the time it was pretty awesome. Watching it again now, for the first time in many years, SEVEN has lost some of it's punch but it's still a fun ride. For some reason, I remember it being a darker film, but I guess that can probably just be chalked up to me being more innocent back then.
Quick pace, highly influential, good acting, plot holes, great camerawork, strong cast. SEVEN is mandatory viewing for all movie lovers.
