Director: David Fincher
Cast: Morgan Freeman, Brad Pitt, Gwyneth Paltrow, Kevin Spacey, R. Lee Ermey

David Fincher’s second film is a brilliant thriller about two cops who try to capture a serial killer who punishes his victims for seven deadly sins. The film is utterly scary and atmospherically shot. The uncompromising script by Andrew Kevin Walker turns the genre on its head, and in the end it’s not about the manhunt at all. Morgan Freeman is once again awesome as the disillusioned detective who is looking forward to his retirement.
