Time to revel in the awesomeness of opening credits: Se7en is one of Fincher’s best and its intro is probably the coolest thing I’ve ever seen. I mentioned in my Gone Girl post that I wanted to share this with you but before I get started, I want to warn you that this is probably the longest visual post so far – there are almost 100 images of it!
Se7en is a great movie with an interesting plot and it obviously deserved a meaningful intro. There is slow, eery imagery, mixed in with flashes of images, a lot of double layers of images and a cool effect usage on text elements. Driven from the movie is also the usage of book pages, hand written pages, the blackness of it all and of course the creepy theme song playing in the background: it reminds me of American Horror Story a little bit, especially in the beginning, which totally makes sense.
