Fifth about The Seventh

Seven Days in May

Seven Days in May: tight, efficient and above all, realistic political thriller. A big part of the realism comes from the camera work; it’s not one thing all the time, it shifts as the needs require. At times, its nervous like a documentary; at times, long takes that let the actors breathe and work. It is quite a cast, and they are effective; most surprisingly, Burt Lancaster, not playing a charismatic rascal for a change. Very well-written, as well.
