Zodiac ★★★

One of Fincher's few weakest films (Alien 3 being the other). Great performances from the cast including Gyllenhaal, Sevigny & Ruffalo. Zodiac has some intense moments here and there, good classic music & good direction from Fincher. However, it's way overlong and suffers from very slow pacing. Fincher and crew could have cut at least 20 minutes and tell the true story with a some fixes on the pacing, add a little bit more intensity and humor. Overall, the movie is ok with a very interesting look at the Zodiac killings through the eyes of Fincher and great performances but it's by far Fincher's weakest film to date.
