Se7en ★★★★½

A brilliant and grim detective tale that leaves a lasting impression - one that poses the notion of optimism not being able to stay alive in a world that continues to beat it down until belief can no holder be held. Morgan Freeman and Brad Pitt are perfect opposites and Fincher's control of the themes and ideas through them is masterful. It's about being right and set in your ways even though you wish you were wrong. Somerset has seen it all and it's worn him down. Watching him realise the same has happened - but to an extreme degree - to Mills is shattering. One of the of the best endings ever.

Watching Se7en on a 4K TV was awesome, I never noticed how truly textured and great the production value is until now. The setting goes a long way and it all feels so real.
