R | | Crime, Drama, Mystery
Two detectives, a rookie and a veteran, hunt a serial killer who uses the seven deadly sins as his motives.
Make-up for the 'sloth' victim took over fourteen hours.
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 the detectives find the fingerprints that say "Help me" behind the painting and submit them to be found in the database, the technician says that it can take up to three days to make a match. Later they talk about how they found Sloth in the apartment exactly a year "to the day" after the first photo of him was taken. If the killer wanted them to find Sloth on a particular day, how could he have known how long it would take the police to find a fingerprint match?
SPOILER: Kevin Spacey's name is not included in the opening titles to keep the John Doe intrigue going. To compensate, he is listed twice in the closing credits: once before the credits start rolling and once in the rolling credits in order of appearance.
