20 Facts About 'Se7en' (Besides the Fact That it's Creepy as Hell)
If you’re ever in a rut, just remember David Fincher had lost all faith in the art of making movies and was about to go back to his badass music videos after the nightmare that was Alien 3 – and then he received the script for Se7en. We would say “the rest is history,” but we just saw Se7en again, and holy crap, David, what is wrong with you? Why are you making us write “Se7en” like an emo kid on 2003s Tumblr? But also, great film, keep up the good work, and boy, what history did you make. Se7en is an almost perfect movie, except for the fact the Sloth victim has three arms, and so we just had to remind our readers of this fact. Of the fact it is awesome, we mean, not the three arms. Okay, here: one, two, three arms.
With that said, here are 20 more facts about the Se7en. It was Fincher’s very first masterpiece, it showed the world the man’s brilliant vision, and it had its four leads at the top of their game. And yes, we know, Kevin Spacey is a major douche and Gwyneth Paltrow has exchanged a legendary acting career for grifting, like a Jordan Peterson for wealthy wine moms. But that doesn’t mean they didn’t contribute in making the movie the classic that it is. And as for Fincher, even if he would soon abandon Se7en’s gritty, slimy aesthetic for smooth camera movements and clean CGI surfaces, this movie is a good reminder of the best the decade had to offer. And you know that pang of nostalgia you just got from remembering that grungy ’90s style? Don’t worry, we got you, didn’t we say Fincher’s music videos were badass?
