KJ Schultz’s review published on Letterboxd:
Hard not to like a movie that Fincher puts out (Gone Girl, Fight Club, Se7en, Social Network). Zodiac is every bit as good as those mentioned. In this particular film, Fincher tackles the Zodiac killings from California. It’s kind of a Sherlock Holmes meets Newsroom mashup with a perfectly selected cast of characters trying to uncover the killer. The movie carefully gathers the facts over the years and intertwines the murders throughout. Doing so in a suspenseful and sometimes utterly brutal manner. You will frantically gather your phone or tablet after the credits hit, yearning to learn more about the killings that took place in the 70s. Jake Gyllenhaal and Robert Downey Junior both do fantastic jobs, as the rookie cartoonist and booze guzzling big time reporter. It’s a movie that sat on my watchlist for way too long and hopefully will jump to the top of yours. If you like murder mysteries, thrillers, or any type of creepy crime dramas, this is at the top of the food chain.
