5.0 out of 5 stars Fincher's Best Dec 29 2007
Format:DVD
The director is David Fincher (who was responsible for the over-rated but undeniably fascinating 'Fight Club,' and other distractingly fast-paced thrillers like 'Se7en,' 'Panic Room,' and 'The Game'). Jake Gyllenhaal and Robert Downey jr play journalists obsessed with catching the killer, and the always-wonderful Mark Ruffalo is the detective in charge of the case. The film wears its influences on its sleeve. 70's thrillers like 'All the President's Men,' and 'The Conversation' are evident in every frame (David Shire, 'The Conversation' composer was even hired to do the music). However, unlike most homages, this film is entirely worthy of standing shoulder to shoulder with the pictures that inspired it. I'm not kidding; 'Zodiac' is in the same league as 'The Conversation.'

I was so delighted by this movie. Unlike Fincher's previous efforts, 'Zodiac' is very slow-paced, and quite long (almost three hours); it is careful, deliberate, and intelligent. The cinematography is wonderful. The acting is all pitch-perfect. It is an almost flawless piece of cinema.

What really elevated the film into greatness for me was how ethical it dared to be (in other words, how out of step it is with the current moral zeitgeist in America). First, it manages to tell this gruesome story with a surprising amount of restraint. But more importantly, it tells the story of detectives who value due process and the rule of law; without ever falling prey to apologetic left-wing cowardice. It tells the story of men who are strong, but not macho. It was such a relief to see reason and integrity, rather than brute force and simplistic morality, in an American thriller; and as a cinephile with a weak spot for all things slow-paced, I was in heaven watching the plot unfurl with so much grace and control. The editing was masterful.

Zodiac is the best thriller in recent years.

5.0 out of 5 stars Warner took over Paramount's loss. Feb. 9 2013
By Simon Bergeron TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
A few weeks back, the only way you could buy Zodiac on blu-ray was by laying down an easy $70 for Paramount's 2009 out of print edition. Now, thanks to Warner, the film's back on shelves with a much lower price tag. Co-productions sometimes work great and this is the case here. Do not fear of finding a different cover than before, Warner only re-printed the exact same set and the only real difference is a sticker on the plastic sleeve over the bar code.

The film itself is a masterpiece. It's a superb analysis of obsession in just about every character the picture finds, times passing by and much more themes than can be listed. Jake Gylenhaal is a wonderful actor cast as the Zodiac-obsessed cartoonist Robert Graysmith, surrounded by top-talents of Robert Downey Jr., Mark Rufallo, Brian Cox, Chloë Sevigny and more. The film itself takes its time to explore the true events and Fincher's eye for detail (visual AND narrative) makes for a very eerie film. So much so that I suspect even the actual survivors may have a hard time watching it. After Seven, The Game and Fight Club, you can finally add Zodiac on your blu-ray shelf without killing your wallet first.

In terms of audio and video qualities, the main soundtrack seems a bit dull, the only real flat point on this edition. Background action sometimes overwhelms the characters speaking, which is the main problem here. As far as video presentation is concerned, it was flawless even for a 2007 film. The colors, textures and many details are spotless, even though I'm far from a professional, it suited my tastes from frame 1 to final credits.

Special features, here we go: Warner thought it good to include ALL of the second disc again, which is another good idea.

5.0 out of 5 stars Four Men, One Obsession: Who is the Zodiac? Sept. 23 2007
Format:DVD
On December 20th, 1968, Darlene Ferrin and Mike Mageau are shot. Darlene dies and Mike lives. Seven months later, the San Francisco Chronicle receives a letter in which the writer claims he is Darlene's killer and intends to kill again. This letter would not only terrify the public, but would start an obsession for four men. This obsession would ruin marriages and careers. For the next two decades, these four men were fixated on one question, one that would never be completely answered, a question that may, within itself, be just as dangerous as finding the answer: Who is the Zodiac?

Zodiac is a superb film that is as realistic and authentic as a film based on actual events film can be. It is filled with characters who can only be inspired by actual people. The film boasts an excellent cast, with every actor contributing scintillating performances. Robert Downey, Jr., is charismatic and quirky as Paul Avery, bringing this character to life, as the audience witnesses his descent from a funny and brilliant ace reporter to a practically unemployable alcoholic. Anthony Edwards is pensive and understated as the cop who cannot handle the pressure of an unsolved case. Mark Ruffalo's Detective Dave Toschi is a determined and streetwise cop whose frustration almost consumes him, as each lead produces insufficient evidence to charge a suspect. Finally, Jake Gyllenhaal's Robert Graysmith is funny and heartwarming as the cartoonist-turned-amateur-sleuth, who comes the closest to solving the crime.

The director, David Fincher, is masterful at bringing the dark and macabre to the screen and he does not disappoint with Zodiac.
