Don't Forget To Love, part 24 of 24

Welcome to the Single-Minded Movie Blog advent calendar. Between the 1st and the 24th of December every day will bring you a short post about a film or a TV-show you shouldn't forget to love.

Seven (1995)

Twenty-four days ago we embarked on a careless mission of consumerism. We hate it, but we can't help ourselves. No one asked us if we wanted to do it this time around, but like lemmings we did what we always do. We were powerless. Victims of fate and tradition. It's the same every year, and so here we are, three and a half week later, and it's the 24th of December, yet again. Christmas day. Unavoidably so.

You see the link to our movie of the day, don't you?

It's hard for me to put into words how much I love Seven. No wait, it's not! I love it with the white-hot intensity of a thousand suns. It's the best movie ever made. Why? An absolutely fascinating story, both erudite and trashy, as elegant as it is raw and gritty. Absolutely stunning visuals - one of the most beautiful movies ever shot. I could go on for hours, but it's Christmas, so I'm not going to.

Seven is simply a masterpiece. I wouldn't change a frame.

Never ever, ever forget to love it. And have a merry Christmas.


  1. I couldn't agree more - but from my point of view it is not a movie one forgets to love especially compared to some of the other entries in your Don't Forget To Love Advent calendar.

    Merry Christmas to you and your avid followers ...

  2. Fair point, Sir. But I felt no. 24 should be something big. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you!
