Review: Zodiac

07 Feb 12


Here's the story behind the true story that inspired DIRTY HARRY. Hardgoing on first viewing - but well worth it. Painstaking research translates into a detailled examination, recreation and "solving" of a crime. If you loved Oliver Stone's JFK then this is along those lines. Slow, deliberate and consumately crafted by a filmmaker with nothing to prove. It goes beyond perfectionist and into obsession in terms of detail. Cinematography, soundtrack, costume, sets, casting - everything is just so. Stunning and it gets even better after repeat viewings. Honest. Well worth the effort - it rewards by the truck load.
