Zodiac ★★★★½

Zodiac, which tells the true life story of the Zodiac killer during the 1960s and 1970s, is masterfully atmospheric, stylish and chilling. Director David Fincher is able to capture the feeling of panic, hysteria and fear, as well as the extreme frustration surrounding the search for the Zodiac killer with well-rounded character studies, great cinematography and top notch screenplay that is fabulously written. The story unravels at a deliberately slow pace, giving each character adequate screen time while also creating a natural feeling timeline and adding to the movie's suspense. The acting is top notch, especially Robert Downey, Jr. Surprisingly the films is humorous at times, too. It's a pretty long time at almost 2 hrs. 45 minutes (almost too long), but it is very engrossing, and the time mostly flies by. Zodiac is one of David Fincher's best films. It is definitely worth checking out.
