  1. Not even bags of body parts, a bitten-off tongue or a man forced to cut off a pound of his own flesh keep it from being dull. [22 September 1995, p. C18]

    "Se7en" is a disturbing movie because of everything the movie pertains. From powerful performances by Freeman and Pitt to the creepy Spacey, the dialogue was also a intelligently written one too. Although the story may be hard to follow or understand, "Se7en" is a masterpiece, the godfather of all crime thrillers. Full Review »

    A true original. Great acting from Pitt; probably the role that launched him into the bigshot he is today. The whole thing is creepy. It's not meant to be Saw. Man, people are dumb. Full Review »
