Zodiac (2007, David Fincher)

"Based on the Robert Graysmith books about the real life notorious Zodiac, a serial killer who terrorized San Francisco with a string of seemingly random murders during the 1960s and 1970s."

I havent enjoyed a film so much in a long time. By this I mean that I have sat on the edge of my seat and truly gotten lost in .

Zodiac is an amazing achievement in film that as much love and recognition that it is getting from film buffs will still take awhile before it truly reaches the status that it should.

Everything about this film is perfectly done and it truly shows a master of the craft behind the camera. The sound design, the editing, the script, the cinematography, everything. It just all adds up to tell a story that is sure to have you interested and entertained for its long running time which will feel all too short when it is over. Some of the scenes that this film contains are the kind of stuff film buffs are always on the lookout for and this one delivers them one after another. It is also the kind of film that film buffs will pick up new things from when they watch it again, which always shows the quality of the film. It really is some great stuff that makes you want to applaud the film when the final credits come up.

This is David Fincher's masterpiece and I really hope the academy doesn't fuck this one over come award season. This is so far the best film of the year and it will be hard to top it.

I also can not wait to see the full directors cut version of the film.

- A+
