Great film. I just came back from seeing it and if any of you are interested in films that faithfully go through evidence to recreate what's happened in real life, this is a movie for you. I'd place it alongside All the President's Men as one of the great news-related films ever made.

I really,REALLY need to see this movie! I've read both of Robert Graysmith"s books ( ZODIAC and ZODIAC UNMASKED) and have even tried my hand at decoding some of the unsolved messages...fascinating reading! Thumbup

My interest in the Zodiac case in particular began when I read Cases that Haunt Us by John Douglas and Mark Olshaker. In that book, Douglas and Olshaker tend toward Greysmith's view of the case after they lay out all of the facts of the case. I don't know what it is about this particular series of crimes that is so fascinating, but I enjoyed the movie enough to want to rewatch it, that's for sure.

I want to see the film if only for Fincher's involvement with the film.  He's possibly my favorite "good" director.  Fight Club was a revelation, and I've gone back and bought each of Fincher's earlier films.  That man can direct!

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
