Part of our …before the case cracks you film series.

In the late 1960s and 1970s, fear grips the city of San Francisco as a serial killer called Zodiac stalks its residents. Investigators and reporters become obsessed with learning the killer’s identity and bringing him to justice. Meanwhile, Zodiac claims victim after victim and taunts the authorities with cryptic messages, cyphers, and menacing phone calls.

“David Fincher’s grim but mesmerizing Zodiac offers the puzzle-solving addictiveness of a detective story, the shivers of a thriller and the allure of a character study, all presented with a dash of newspaper drama. When it’s over, you’ll wonder why you’re leaning forward, gripping the arms of your chair, forgetting to blink.” Moira Macdonald, The Seattle Times

“A modern American masterpiece.” Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out
