Interiors – Se7en


Interiors is an online journal, published on the 15th of each month, in which films are analyzed and diagrammed in terms of space. Interiors focuses on how space is used throughout a particular scene and how the architecture of the film impacts its narratives and characters.

The film follows Detective Lt. William Somerset (Morgan Freeman) and Detective David Mills (Brad Pitt) in their quest to find a killer who orchestrates a series of horrifying murders modeled after the Seven Deadly Sins. The detectives navigate through physical spaces for the entire film – dark hallways and alleyways, disorganized rooms and offices, crowded buildings and eateries – and as a result, much of the film takes place indoors in confined spaces. It’s interesting to note, then, that the climax of the film shifts from an indoor setting to an outdoor setting.

From Interiors Volume 13. Find out more about the journal here or see past issues here.
