"Fascinating and uncompromising... Zodiac holds you in its grip from start to finish."
-David Ansen, Newsweek
Based on the true story of the notorious serial killer and the intense manhunt he inspired, Zodiac is a superbly crafted thriller from the director of Se7en and Panic Room. Featuring an outstanding ensemble cast led by Jake Gyllenhaal, Robert Downey Jr., Mark Ruffalo and ChloŽ Sevigny, Zodiac is a searing and singularly haunting examination of twin obsessions: one man's desire to kill and another's quest for the truth.
An amazingly creepy and haunting film, with just the right amount of humor (mostly care of Robert Downey Jr.) to keep things from getting too dark. Most disturbing of all is that the events in this film took place in this area of California. You may find yourself watching the film and saying "I've been there."
Rated R (MPAA)
