Which way will you go? Yes, it's long. But let's face it, this is not a film that can be wrapped up in an hour and a half.

There's an awful lot of detail involved in this case. David Fincher was very thorough in his research and full marks to him. This is an excellent, compelling film for anyone interested in true crime and general detective work.

I saw this film a few hours ago and was completely absorbed by it. The opening 4th of July sequence is worthy of the ticket price alone.

And I challenge anyone to listen to "Hurdy Gurdy Man" by Donovan without a cold chill running down their spine after watching this The main performances are excellent - Robert Downey Jr and Jake Gyllenhaal in particular are a standout.

Any feminists out there won't be happy with the rather one-dimensional women's roles and I happen to be female , but this is not what this film is about.

It's about a handful of men's obsessive involvement with one case. And these men ARE utterly obsessed. And after so much taunting by the Zodiac with his letters and cyphers, who can blame them for their obsession?

As for the depiction of the murders, they are quite shocking in their brief brutality with absolutely no glamorous or excessive lingering shots of the aftermath.

This makes them infinitely more real and much more disturbing Combine this with utterly believable dialogue, a superb soundtrack and marvellous production design and you have one classy movie.

For all those tired of your average eye and brain-candy fodder Go see. For those who can't appreciate a class act when you see it, you've missed out TheMovieMark 2 March All words to describe a candlelight dinner with Johnny Betts.

But these words can also be used to accurately describe David Fincher's latest foray into the serial killer genre. Zodiac has been on my "most anticipated" list for quite some time, but having watched many documentaries and read several articles on the subject, I couldn't help but wonder how the film could completely keep my interest when I already knew so much about the material.

Plus, we're all aware that the case officially remains unresolved, so are we to resign ourselves to accept an unsatisfactory conclusion? It took no more than the film's chilling opening scene to cast my fears aside and glue me to the seat for minutes.

My familiarity with the source material actually heightened my enjoyment because I was surprised at how accurately the film depicted the events.

I recognized names and details that I wouldn't have otherwise. I also feel that not definitively knowing the Zodiac's identity adds more suspense to the story.

We're introduced to a number of suspects, and since this is, in part, one man's interpretation of circumstantial evidence, we're allowed to assume that any of the suspects could be the mysterious killer.

It's a plot device that effectively keeps the viewer in a constant state of unease. I know there are multiple theories on the Zodiac's identity, so you can argue that the film ends on an anticlimactic note.

But the movie does have focus, and it presents a compelling case against one of the suspects in such a way that it delivers as much closure as you can expect.

The actors are great especially Downey and his welcome comic relief , the atmosphere is foreboding, and the investigative process is engaging. It may run a little long for some, but I didn't mind the runtime at all.

It's a fascinating case, and I wanted all the information the movie was willing to give me. Zodiac is the kind of film that sticks with you.

I was at a friend's house late after the screening, and when I arrived home I saw a lone car's headlights appear from up the street. My heart began to race a little as I hastened to my door.

I knew then and there that a new Zodiac killer was in the vicinity, and I had no time to tarry. It's been a while since a movie instilled that sort of realistic dread, and I don't know if that's a good thing, but it's certainly a sign no pun intended of the film's success in heightening our awareness of what kind of real-life monsters might be lurking in the shadows.

The majority of viewers with even the slightest interest in the case should be riveted. Those of you with a severely small attention span should probably stick to Norbit instead.

Zodiac, David Fincher's film about the impact the San Francisco Bay Area serial killer's case had on three primary characters is delivered with great attention to detail and proper pacing.

Zodiac is not a film that uses or relies on suspended disbelief to succeed and does not attempt to compress five years of story into one in order to keep viewers interested.

Instead it relies heavily on the facts and uses all of its minutes to present them in almost linear form and staccato fashion.

Set primarily in San Francisco in the late 's and 70's and eventually the 80's Fincher's Zodiac takes no artistic license by adding the obligatory car chase scene down Russian Hill, drug enhanced evening in Haight-Ashbury or conspiracy oriented behind the scenes moves by City Hall.

Instead the audience is presented with a credible story that portrays how stress, tension, frustration and fascination play upon the lives of S.

Each of these people, as well as those surrounding them are operating well within the confines of every day life and the establishment.

Fincher does not let Zodiac wander outside its central story, and therefore no editorial comment about the Vietnam War or similar events of the day are offered.

Insights about the impact on the victims who survive or their families are only touched upon if they remain central to the story. The initial scenes of the movie depict the killer in operation and they are not sugar coated.

However, viewers wanting to see a film in the style of Fincher's Alien 3 , Se7en or even Fight Club i. Zodiac is a well crafted production on all fronts.

In addition to Fincher, the lead actors and extensive and well known supporting cast Zodiac producer's assembled a credible team.

There are no weak spots in this film. Zodiac may not or attempt to dazzle, but it does please. The era in which Zodiac takes place bridges two eras in urban America.

The Zodiac appeared on the tail end of a crime-spree that rampaged across the US in the late 's. His settling in the SF Bay Area may be one of a number of social phenomenons that pushed America's view of itself out of an innocent 's sensibility and into a harder and darker view that became more prevalent starting in the 's and into the 's.

People, even in urban areas, used to be far more trusting of one another, friendly, and civil. Many of the events of the 's gave urban Americans a much more cynical and cautious attitude toward people they didn't know.

Don't trust or talk to strangers. Better to sacrifice helpfulness than to wind up dead. People are out to take advantage. At least in urban areas nowadays, it seems, people are much less willing to take the risk to meeting someone they don't know, largely out of fear.

The film Zodiac chronicles the strange unknowable and faceless figure that emerged as a serial killer in Northern California in the late 's and early 's.

He sent letters to the San Francisco Chronicle and other newspapers, outlining his last and future kills, and he revealed he was inspired by the 's cult classic "The Most Dangerous Game".

The point of view is largely from the side of the press with a character from SF Homicide that is also tracking the case.

One character, Robert Graysmith Jake Gyllenhaal is an SF Chronicle cartoonist who at first takes an amateur's interest in the case, often bothering fellow beat journalist Paul Avery, played brilliantly by Robert Downey Jr.

Only later does the cartoonist engage on his own investigation to reveal the identity of the Zodiac. When Graysmith begins receiving anonymous phone calls with nothing but heavy breathing, you can't help but wonder if he's also playing the same game, and if he may also become one of the hunted.

One of the most brilliant aspects of the film is its pacing. It never lets up and the suspense is always there, which becomes unsettling when you realize that these events actually took place instead of purely in the imagination of a modern suspense novelist.

There is an eeriness which pervades the entire film. A car stopping unexpectedly in a nearly-deserted area is more frightening than most scenes in your average low-budget slasher flicks.

I do have a couple of shortcomings to this film. There are a couple of scenes where the cruelty and brutality of the violence is such that not all viewers will be able to handle this movie.

I found I did have to turn away at a couple of scenes. Also, there are a couple of moments when the state of the investigation is not made clear.

However, even given these shortcoming, Zodiac is a brilliant movie that tackles a subject-matter that probably could not have been brought to the screen during the period it depicts.

The Zodiac came to personify one of the constant fears of living in urban America: a faceless, emotionless killer that comes out of the shadows of a dark alley to commit heinous violence.

In the end, we fear strangers because of this, but we end up sacrificing love. It is an ironic aspect of human nature that people can do to strangers what would be almost unthinkable to do to people that we know.

In addition to the poor innocent people that were brutally murdered, the Zodiac committed another crime against humanity. He compromised our sense of trust, civility, and in many ways, love for our fellow human beings even when we might not know them.

I am tired of people writing comments like this, "Not Fincher's best". Honestly who cares. We all agree that Fincher's best is either Seven or Fight Club, two outstanding masterpieces.

There is a big margin between a film like one of those and a terrible film, and people don't seem to realize that.

These people even do this with other filmmakers like Spielberg or Scorsese, the fact that these filmmakers don't reproduce Schindler's List or Raging Bull doesn't mean that their new stuff isn't good, or worth seeing.

I think it is a stupid way to comment on a film, eliminating the critic's credibility. I was lucky enough to catch an advanced screening of Zodiac last night, and I must say that at first I was discouraged by two things, some of the comments I have read and the running time.

However I am glad to say that I enjoyed this film, very much. It is a solid suspense thriller that pins you to your seat.

Being a true story adds quite a lot to the experience, and besides, Fincher did a wonderful job is staying loyal to the story and at the same time adding his unique flavor to it.

The cinematography, like every Fincher film, is great, the darkness and griddiness of the story are perfectly portrayed in the film's visual elements.

I was surprised by the picture quality of the Viper, the digital camera with which this film was shot. Many people have been criticizing this choice, but I respect it, he is embracing a new technology and making it work.

Of course its still not a match to 35 mm, but if quality filmmakers don't start experimenting with it, it will never be.

Now the reason why this film falls behind Seven and Fight Club, I think, is because of a problem with the characters. They seem to be a little weak at times.

The performances were great, especially Robert Downey Jr. I found it to be a great story told in a remarkable way, very entertaining, with great performances, and wonderful direction.

Audiences have waited a while for a new piece of work from Mr. David Fincher and now that hiatus is officially over. Straying away from his style that earned him a 'cult' following, he brings out a new side to himself, some techniques not yet observed in his repertoire.

The editing is pinch-perfect. Not only that, but Ficher shows that he is an actor's director as well, directing his cast into true life roles wonderfully.

But the credit does not go all on to his shoulders. The actors have a lot to do with that themselves. Jake Gyllenhaal, who plays the author of the book of the same name, plays his character with an irresistible 'nerdi-ness' that is just fun to watch.

Then it is amazing to watch Gyllenhaal transform that character into an obsessed wannabe detective, losing all focus and normal aspects of his life.

Mark Ruffalo plays a humorous and overworked cop with incredibility. He really gets the job done.

Downey Jr. The acting really is a major pro. ZODIAC may come out at a long time slot but the viewer will never realize it because of the film pulling one in, and not wanting to leave until the case is solved.

NumeroOne 1 August The movie makes so many leaps through time and recounts so many investigations that lead nowhere, it is easy to forget that it began as an exciting movie.

One could easily argue that the movie has a right to be so uneventful because it is a "realistic" reflection of police procedure and of, well, reality.

It is, but one can't help but think, With all the time-lapsing that goes on it constantly jumps months ahead in the late '60s and early '70s, and then jumps from '73 to '77 to '83 to '91 , why couldn't it skip more boring parts?

The movie manages to be both too truncated and too thorough. On a positive note, the digital cinematography by Harris Savides gives the film a consistently interesting look, which is something that many better movies don't have.

He gives the film the signature "Fincher" look: saturated pastels in the daytime and a vague yellow-green tint at night.

The movie is visually interesting without being calling too much attention to itself, but it's a shame that there's not enough to watch.

The actors are sufficient, but the movie has no protagonist and we don't get to know anyone well enough - not even Robert Graysmith Jake Gyllenhall , who becomes the de facto main character half way through.

Watched in Fincher's period material is outstanding; the colours of the San Francisco bay look ravishing in images that seem plucked from Hitchcock's Vertigo, and at one point there is a lovely and presumably digital stop-motion historical sequence, recreating the construction of the city's Trans-america Pyramid.

Robert Downey Jr and Jake Gyllenhaal play two shirtsleeved journalists who are on Zodiac's case: Downey is Paul Avery, the mercurial crime reporter who dresses like a wrecked aesthete - a sozzled stew of Jimmy Breslin and Oscar Wilde.

Gyllenhaal is Robert Graysmith, the paper's geeky and little-loved cartoonist whose amateur enthusiasm for the case becomes an obsession.

Our coffee-drinking odd couple do a fair bit of tense perching on each other's desks in the open-plan 60s newsroom, at one stage looking up together in an image used in the picture's publicity stills.

Fincher is here surely recalling the most dynamic duo of the period: Woodward and Bernstein. But who is to be their Deep Throat?

It can only be Zodiac himself, getting in touch with his misogynistic rants, crazy codes and creepy clues.

Zodiac is very different from Fincher's other serial-killer film Seven. That was in the classical serial-killer genre, in which the culprit has a cogent, unified short-range career, conducted within a limited time-frame, leading to a clear unmasking, if not capture.

This movie is quite different: Zodiac's victims are not governed by, say, the 12 astrological signs. They are just random, anarchic.

Zodiac (2007) - trailer

As the movie Zodiac emphasized, there were 2, suspects in all. Lunby at Stanford said that whoever the killer is he will have offered to catch himself.

When Graysmith called investigator Dave Toschi, he asked Toschi if he had ever received that type of letter. David Fincher's movie, which is based on Robert Graysmith's Zodiac books, concludes with Graysmith's belief that Arthur Leigh Allen is the man responsible.

It should be noted here that other high profile Zodiac suspects have existed since They include former San Francisco movie projectionist Rick Marshall and others.

In the movie, Robert Graysmith is alerted to handwriting similarities between Rick Marshall's movie posters that he drew and the handwriting in the Zodiac letters.

You can view one of Rick Marshall's movie posters below. Marshall's association to classic films old movies were played weekly at the Avenue Theater where he worked could also link him to the Zodiac, whose costume at Lake Berryessa was similar to the costume worn by Dr.

Zodiac in the film Charlie Chan at Treasure Island. In the movie, the killer sends messages to local police and news media. Like the real-life killer, the character also wears the symbols of the Zodiac around his neck.

In addition to this classic film, the Zodiac signed one of his letters as "the Red Phantom," which was also the title of a silent film that Rick Marshall had at one time invited guests at his apartment to watch.

Rick Marshall's movie posters like the one above have handwriting similarities to the Zodiac's letters.

He goes there in search of film canisters that may contain Zodiac murder footage. When Graysmith is in the man's home, he asks him about the movie posters that Rick Marshall drew.

The man tells Graysmith that it wasn't Marshall who drew the movie posters, it was him. He then takes Graysmith into the basement where Graysmith hears footsteps above him, even though the man had told him they were alone.

This is all true and really happened to Graysmith, even the footsteps. Some investigators who have researched the case believe that this man and Rick Marshall may have been working together.

The interview was conducted ten days after Bryan's near-fatal encounter with the Zodiac killer, or "code killer," on Saturday, September 27, at Lake Berryessa.

Bryan's female companion at the lake, Cecelia Shepard, parished from her injuries. Cecelia and Bryan had dated two years prior to the attack.

She had come to his school to visit some friends and the two got to talking during dinner at the school cafeteria.

They decided to take a drive out to the lake. The original news segment ran for a duration of 6 min 47 seconds. A young Pacific Union College student who survived a knife attack at Lake Berryessa a week ago Saturday, in which his girl companion was killed, is now in satisfactory condition at a Napa hospital and was able to talk about his ordeal.

The police suspected Bryan Hartnell and Cecelia Shepard were victims of that so-called "code killer" believed responsible for three previous murders in the Vallejo area.

It all started while Hartnell and Cecelia were sitting and talking quietly along the shore of the lake: Bryan Hartnell: I happened to hear some rustling behind us and I asked her to look because she was facing that direction and I was facing toward the water, and I asked her to note, you know, what was going on and she said, "Oh, there's a man walking around there," and she became concerned about it.

And I said, you know, "Well, actually don't worry about it, there's a lot of people, picnickers, etc. She kind of kept watching. I noticed she wasn't following my conversation, and she told me he was stepping behind a tree.

The tree was about 30 feet behind us. And when he came out she said he's got a mask on. That was my first inkling there was anything actually wrong going on.

Bryan Hartnell recovering in the hospital after the attack. He came, I turned around, and we were both still sitting down and he told me that just to come up slowly and hold up my hands, that he wanted our money.

And I actually laughed at the moment because I told him, I said, "I've only got 75 cents in my pocket," and I said, "You're welcome to have it.

But if you need help I'm sure I could give you help otherwise. And I offered him assistance. I told him what I was doing in school and that if I could be of any assistance whatsoever--I offered him my phone number, anything like this, but this just wasn't what he wanted.

He said he wanted money. I was real sorry, I said, "Would you like a check, I'd really like to help you if you'd be willing to accept help.

Then he tied her up. And we continued to dialogue along most of this time. He told me to get down now, and he wanted to tie my ankles to my wrists and I offered some objection because I, you know, it was one thing being, sitting out there tied up and another thing having to lay out there tied up.

I didn't know when help would come. I still suspected this was still a robbery case and there was no reason for concern. I mean, I was cooperating with him.

There was no reason why he would be acting otherwise. He tied us both up separately but beside each other on our faces.

He asked me to put my wrists tighter and he tied us up then. I did look around and he was messing with his gun and I got to see what the gun looked like, and he put it away and I was convinced this was the end of the episode and I just rolled over on my face again, you know, just waiting for him to leave and to muse in my mind what we were going to do next, and how we were going to get away and how I was going to untie her, etc.

The next thing I can remember is the knife being put in my back. Did you, after he attacked you, he then went and attacked the girl, did you see that?

Bryan Hartnell: Well, yeh, because as soon as he started getting me, the girl, of course, I don't know what her, what she thought, but she started calling asking him to stop and almost trying to reach over and stop his blows, because of course she was tied up and she could only just move, and he kind of put her on her side, I think, and as soon as he had given me about six or seven blows, he went on to her and I looked and I saw he was stabbing her and it just really made me sick to see the fellow and there was nothing I could do.

So I just turned on my face and lay real still, you know, because there was nothing I could do. Cecelia Shepard lost her life when she and Bryan Hartnell were tied up and stabbed by the Zodiac killer.

Can you describe for us what your attacker looked like? Bryan Hartnell: Well, when he was standing up he would kind of shift around.

He acted like a very nervous person. He was of medium to short height, kind of pouchy, real casually, I don't want to say sloppily, but real casually dressed and, of course, a little dusty from the lake, and he had this black hood on that came clear down to here.

Just little slits in the eyes and wearing these clip-on glasses, they were clipped into those little loops. See Robert Graysmith's Zodiac killer sketch.

You remained conscious through the entire ordeal. How long was it until help finally came? Bryan Hartnell: Well, as soon as he got us, of course, CeCe and I prayed that whatever the Lord wished that it could be expedient and that we would be willing to do whatever He had in mind.

But we also realized that half of the battle was going to have to be ours, that we were going to have to help ourselves. And, I got till I was able to untie one of her hands, but she was too weak to untie me at that time, so I scooted into a position where I could be looking out across the lake, and after calling several times, I found one position that had a little more Bryan Hartnell Transcript Page 3 : echo to it that I thought was a little louder, and I called and several boats went by but they didn't stop.

I don't know if they thought we were joking, or what. But finally, one fisherman who was going a little slow, he stopped and shut off his motor, and we cajoled and called and we did everything to try to get him to come.

He sat there for about fifteen minutes, and he did finally come closer but wouldn't come to the shore. I guess he was afraid the man might still be around.

And he said he'd go get help. But I assumed he was like a lot of people you read about, he just didn't want to get involved.

So I decided that we were going to have to do this on our own. So I encouraged her enough to get me untied. I got one wrist loose so that I could get the rest untied.

Then I untied her. She was still so weak she couldn't move. How were you finally found? Bryan Hartnell: Well, she was found down on the blanket still.

I made it up about yards, up almost to the road. It was a slow process because I kept blacking, I couldn't see. I kept blacking out and my legs kept getting weak, but I was making progress.

I think I could have made it to the road, but a pickup truck was coming along one of the dirt roads. Apparently, this man had called for help and he picked me up and took me back down to the girl.

Bryan Hartnell's attacker is still at large, and a murderer. The Napa Sheriff's Office reports it is still checking out numerous leads. Watch Zodiac related video clips below and see authentic news footage from when the Zodiac killer held the San Francisco Bay Area in a perpetual state of fear.

Then, view several interviews with real-life amateur investigator Robert Graysmith and the actor who portrayed him in the movie Zodiac , Jake Gyllenhaal.

Author Robert Graysmith and his onscreen counterpart Jake Gyllenhaal talk about the movie and Gyllenhaal's portrayal.

Graysmith says that he didn't know that he was obsessed until Gyllenhaal portrayed him. The interviewer questions whether people will be yearning for more of a resolution at the end of the film.

They reveal that the director of the film, David Fincher, grew up in the area at the time of the killings and remembers police cars following his bus to school after the killer threatened to shoot school children getting off the bus.

The most notable piece of footage is an interview with victim Bryan Hartnell, who was gravely injured during an attack at Lake Berryessa in Napa Valley when the Zodiac took the life of his female companion Cecelia Shepard.

News anchor Walter Cronkite introduces the story. Belli was supposed to meet the killer later in the day, but he never showed up.

During the call the killer says that he has headaches that started when he killed a kid. Do you think it's real? Is the caller a fake, or is it all a hoax?

This ABC Primetime segment aired during the week before the movie was released. It features clips from the film, along with brief interviews with author Robert Graysmith as well as actor Jake Gyllenhaal.

The segment goes on to explore whether the murders can ever be solved. This is the trailer for the minute documentary "Hunting The Zodiac" filmed from The documentary chronicles the investigation and countless hours that amateur detectives have spent trying to crack the case.

Zodiac spans a year period to the early s: an epic, tangled saga of leads muddled, evidence lost and areas of jurisdiction haggled over.

The murder scenes are chilling, counterpointed by the stolid procedural work and the rich background settings. Fincher's period material is outstanding; the colours of the San Francisco bay look ravishing in images that seem plucked from Hitchcock's Vertigo, and at one point there is a lovely and presumably digital stop-motion historical sequence, recreating the construction of the city's Trans-america Pyramid.

Robert Downey Jr and Jake Gyllenhaal play two shirtsleeved journalists who are on Zodiac's case: Downey is Paul Avery, the mercurial crime reporter who dresses like a wrecked aesthete - a sozzled stew of Jimmy Breslin and Oscar Wilde.

This movie is quite different: Zodiac's victims are not governed by, say, the 12 astrological signs.

They are just random, anarchic. His story has no clear ending and so clearly belongs to that other genre of muddled, messy, unreadable real life.

Those were about serial killers who are doing something other than serial-killing for large amounts of screen time: serial killers plugging away at the day job.

The killer can muddle along for years without his career coming to any sort of crisis; it may not even be clear to him that he is a "serial killer" in the generally accepted sense of the term.

As his murders tail off, or are attributed to other wackos, Zodiac himself seems like a once-praised but now misunderstood artist who has mysteriously neglected or even abandoned his vocation.
