Episode 6: Se7en

This week we discuss the 1995 crime thriller Se7en, starring Brad Pitt and Morgan Freeman as police detectives hunting a psychotic serial killer. We leaped (leapt?) to this film through actor Brad Pitt.  

Season 1, Episode 24

THE Leap

How did we leap here?

Actor: Brad Pitt

From: The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford

Chosen by:
Actor (Glenn)
Film (Mike)

Brad Pitt gives us a lot of options for our next leap. Mike chose 1995 film Se7en, a great improvement on last weeks film. This leap shows the breadth of Brad Pitt’s acting range, from criminal killer, to victim cop.

Where are we leaping to?

Actor: Morgan Freeman

To: Million Dollar Baby

Chosen by:
Actor (Scott)
Film (Glenn)

The great Morgan Freeman gets us to another of Glenn’s favourite films. Morgan Freeman goes from playing a detective about to retire, to a retired boxer (and the films narrator – one of Freemans strengths) in Million Dollar Baby.
