"Seven" and Sunlight

This edit in "Seven" (1995) is gorgeous. A rare moment of direct sunlight in an overcast, rainy, dark film at a moment when Mills is contemplating the fragility of human life.

From the David Fincher director commentary: the only way that amazing edit could exist is because they shot both profiles of Mills and Somerset at the same time with two cameras. The serendipity of the sun hitting the car, seemingly perfectly timed, was recorded by both cameras.
