See this film: Se7en @ the Coolidge [with talk by forensic psychiatrist]

FedEx boxes of a certain size have never been the same after an infamous scene in David Fincher's Se7en (1998), a film that has its share of outrageously brutal moments. A serial killer has taken the seven deadly sins to heart, choosing victims who are flagrantly guilty of each vice and murdering them with hideous, Dantesque appropriateness. Morgan Freeman and Brad Pitt play detectives who must delve into their own souls to come up with a solution. A more conventional effort for Fincher, compared to Zodiac and The Social Network, but he transforms it into an entertainment that is as profound as it is gripping. It's part of the Coolidge Corner's Science on Screen series, and forensic psychiatrist Thomas Gutheil, MD, co-founder of the Program in Psychiatry and the Law, Harvard Medical School, will be on hand to help make sense of the insanity. The Coolidge is at 290 Harvard Ave, Brookline | Monday, September 10 @ 7 pm | $9; $7.25 student; $6 seniors | 617.734.2501 or
