David Fincher, 2007 (9.0*)

This is a riveting, intellectual police investigation film, not an action thrill ride, and it is another riveting film from excellent director David Fincher (The Game, Fight Club, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button). Even though a bit overlong, it is still gripping and intense throughout its length. The cast is uniformly excellent, especially Jake Gyllenhaal (Donnie Darko), and Chloe Sevigny (wife 2 on Big Love), even Anthony Edwards in a small part, though Robert Downey does mumble his lines a bit, and can be hard to understand.

This film will shed more light on the Zodiac killings than most of us know, this will likely be the definitive film on these murders and perhaps close the book. If you haven't, see ALL of David Fincher's films, they entertain and stick with you awhile.

I also liked this movie, but I thought it was on the long side. Very good acting. I didn't really know about the Zodiac murders, so at the end I was really hoping for closure, but I didn't get any.

These are the individual film reviews of what I'm considering the best 1000 dvds available, whether they are films, miniseries, or live concerts. Rather than rush out all 1000 at once, I'm doing them over time to allow inclusion of new releases - in fact, 2008 has the most of any year so far, 30 titles in all; that was a very good year for films, one of the best ever.
