Plot Summary: Two detectives investigate a string of homicides, motivated by the seven deadly sins.
Note: It's time for the podcast's annual, month-long Horror commentaries. Heidi returns to kick things off with David Fincher's influential thriller. We talk about color palettes, the crime drama sub-genre, economy of storytelling through structure and character and the lost art of opening credits sequences. Remember to listen for the preemptive countdown before starting the film on your DVD.
Correction: It was the film's editing, not screenplay that was nominated for an Academy Award. However, the screenplay did win a Saturn Award.
