Director David Fincher's cut of his acclaimed thriller based on actual case files surrounding the notorious San Francisco Bay area murders of the 1970s. As the serial killer known as 'Zodiac' taunts the police with letters and cryptic clues, reporters and investigators become increasingly obsessed with finding the murderer's identity, as the cat and mouse game impacts on their professional and personal lives. The film stars Jake Gyllenhaal, Mark Ruffalo and Robert Downey Jr.

This is my second favorite David Fincher film (behind Dragon Tattoo), which is saying something given his filmography.
Zodiac takes a routine detective/true crime story and transforms it into a mesmerizing tale of consumption and obsession. The amount of detail the film throws at us is nothing short of brilliant, as we start to feel the overwhelming sense of urgency driving the investigation.
Great performances, wonderful cinematography, and Fincher's direction clinch the 5-star rating. I don't want to pigeonhole him as a director, but Fincher really knows how to make crime mysteries.
The "basement" scene instills so much tension every time I watch it, which is remarkable. Same with the opening murder. No scene is wasted, and there is always something to keep you glued to the film.
Kudos the Fincher for one of the great true crime mysteries!
There were many times throughout the movie when I legitimately thought, "I hope they get this guy..." Now, being familiar with the events, I could guess how it was going to end. But this movie was so well done that it made me consider it as a newly-unfolding story.
There is nothing special about the acting in this film, with the exception of maybe Robert Downey, Jr and at times Jake Gyllenhaal. What really makes this movie is the screenplay itself. It's compelling and doesn't lose sight of the intricacies of the actual investigation.
Great thriller/mystery for a weekend viewing.
