For everyone who cares to take a look behind the scenes of SE7EN and at the works of cinematographer Darius Khondji, here are two links to satisfy your cravings. One is a pre-PANIC ROOM interview by Nic Wistreich, the other a post-PANIC ROOM article in The Persian Mirror, highlighting and commenting on each feature film work by Mr. Khondji.
The reason I emphasize PANIC ROOM, is that it marks a sad turning point in the professional and friendly relationship between Fincher and Khondji -- with various accounts of what has happened during the shooting. While IMDB keeps the report slim, stating only that "Darius Khondji left the project after just two weeks into principal photography", other articles report creative differences between Khondji and Fincher, the studio or otherwise Khondji falling behind schedule (and thus being replaced by Conrad W. Hall, son of the legendary Conrad L. Hall).
What's interesting now about the Persian Mirror article is that it gives another account of what was going on ... and it ain't nice.
Other masterful works of Mr. Khondji include "The City of Lost Children", "Delicatessen" and Madonna's "Evita".
And of course:
Thanks to J.D. for finding and reporting the Persian Mirror article!
