David Fincher États-Unis, 2007

ig_____or's rating of the film Zodiac

The first half-hour is good, but then it gets so slow and uninspired. The focus keeps switching from the detectives to the journalists, with both fronts being equally boring. Robert Downey Jr. and Chloë Sevigny seemed completely miscast. A lot of characters and information just kept being thrown as years passed by, leading to a mildly interesting final confrontation. All that research overtook the rhythm of the film.
