One thought on “Decades Blogathon – Zodiac (2007)

  1. This movie is intense. I’ve seen it 3X. It has a long running time – but never drags for an instant. The stalking sequences where Zodiac hits a couple in a parked car and another in a park are riveting. Hold your breath and try to look away spellbinding. The acting by Gyllenhaal, Ruffalo and Downey (who is excellent here – one of his best performances ever as an alcoholic San Francisco Chronicle reporter who gets too close to the action and can’t handle it) is across the board terrific. The story is chilling enough – and knowing that the killer was never formerly caught or charged – puts a real intensity on the way the story plays out in the film. True or not – you want it to have happened this way. The movie was so good that it made me go out and buy the book and read that.
