10 | Dark and disturbing thriller that will stay with you for ever.
Rarely there has been a movie with such a good dark and chilling atmosphere. I even see this movie more as an horror ...
A metronome, shown in one of the scenes, is often symbolic of patience, steadiness, and making order from chaos. It also marks the passing of time as Somerset waits and waits.
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.
In the library, when Somerset is folding a print of Dante's Purgatory, a mistake in the roman numerals can be seen. The lustful and the gluttonous, although in proper roman numeral order, need to be swapped around on the list.
The opening credits are done over broken, blurred images of John Doe removing the skin from his fingertips and sewing it into his journals.
