Se7en (1995)

Two detectives, a rookie and a veteran, hunt a serial killer who uses the seven deadly sins as his modus operandi. (IMDb)

Starts off a bit slow and muddy (a second viewing might help) but gradually registers and increases in tension and intrigue as it goes on. The spine-tingling mystery plot is complimented by the film’s dark and rainy atmosphere captured by some really cool camerawork throughout, while the grizzled vet/rash rookie dynamic is played off well by Freeman and Pitt, adding some darkly humourous banter to the mix. Spacey, meanwhile, is a chilling villain who hypnotizes in the stunning drawn-out finale.
