Old detective's last and young detective's first case is a killer who uses the seven deadly sins for his motive.
Among the most depressing films ever made, it's also thrilling in a way. Made by the same guy who did FIGHT CLUB, one of my all time favorites. The New Line DVD is packed with all kinds of stuff including different endings, cut scenes, and a music only track. The unbilled killer is perfection. Morgan Freeman is cranky and believable. Brad Pitt is all hyperness and we see his tender scenes with then lover Gwyneth Paltrow.
