R | | Crime, Drama, Mystery
Two detectives, a rookie and a veteran, hunt a serial killer who uses the seven deadly sins as his motives.
There's a line, in which Mills names motives that killers give; one of them is "Jodie Foster told me to do it." He is referring to John Hinckley, Jr., a man that was obsessed with Jodie Foster, and attempted to assassinate President Ronald Reagan, in order to impress her. ... ...
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.
While Somerset and Mills are driving in what appears to be a torrential downpour, the parked cars seen outside Mills window look dry, as do the streets and sidewalks. Sunlight can be seen in some shots also, which wouldn't happen in such a severe deluge.
The opening credits are done over broken, blurred images of John Doe removing the skin from his fingertips and sewing it into his journals.
