R | | Crime, Drama, Mystery
Two detectives, a rookie and a veteran, hunt a serial killer who uses the seven deadly sins as his motives.
In 2001, the Patriot Act gave the government the ability to monitor library records, something which at one point halfway through the film is stated to not be necessarily legal.
Neighbors heard them screaming at each other, like for two hours, and it was nothing new. Then they heard the gun go off, both barrels. Crime of passion.
William Somerset: Yeah, just look at all the passion on that wall.
When Somerset returns to gluttony's apartment he cuts a police "keep out" sign to let him in. This sign is on the inside of the apartment when it should be on the outside of the door. It would be impossible for this sign to be placed on the inside unless someone remained in the apartment.
The opening credits are done over broken, blurred images of John Doe removing the skin from his fingertips and sewing it into his journals.
