Zodiac (2007) Synopsis:

Based on true events, the “zodiac” becomes a raging, yet highly cognitive serial killer in San Francisco during the late 1960s and 1970s. Police detectives on the case are stumped on how to solve the murders happening right in front of them. It isn’t until an unlikely source, an obsessed cartoonist for the San Francisco Chronicle, becomes a captivated researcher into some undiscovered evidence points and possible suspects.

Zodiac (2007) Review:

One of the few extraordinary, gifted directors continuing to make quality films is David Fincher (Fight Club, The Social Network, Gone Girl). The man knows how to piece a story together and make long periods of dialog interesting. Watching Zodiac, I was so drawn into it; it really felt like the viewer was trying to solve a murder mystery. It’s understandable why Robert Graysmith dedicated his life to searching out the truth of the Zodiac killings. The initial kills are horrific and they hook the audience into the film immediately, which leads directly to the perplexing case.

Just watching the film, it’s clear to see that the story told in the movie had to be historically accurate because it seemed like the audience was listening to private conversations that happened years ago. The trio of stars, Jake Gyllenhaal, Robert Downey Jr., and Mark Ruffalo were all superb in their characters and easily likable. The film is very long but worth the watch if your patient enough to follow an amazing true story about a serial killer. Not enough do we get a high budget, accurate representation of these real-life killers. Zodiac is a sleeping gym that I recommend often to people who haven’t seen it.
