Se7en turned 25 this week, and it still holds up as one of the best crime thrillers ever made.
The older I get the more I understand Somerset, and the worse I feel for Mills. Se7en is one of those movies that sticks with your forever. It is the ultimate twist on the buddy cop movie. Instead of falling into the humor tropes, these guys are served with a case that will haunt them forever: a serial killer whose targets all follow the 7 deadly sins.
Written by Andrew Kevin Walker directed by David Fincher, Se7en left us with one of the greatest movie lines of all time…
“What’s in the box?”
That line, unlike some characters, will live forever and was recently given a retrospective from The Ringer.
Today, I wanted to go through the story of Se7en and pull out the 5 lessons I think would be most valuable to our readers.
