Quint deciphers David Fincher's ZODIAC!!!

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with my second review of the day. I jump from Joel Schumacher to David Fincher. I grew up in the San Francisco Bay Area, but the Zodiac killings were before my time. However, it's impossible to grow up there without hearing all about it from neighbors, parents and grandparents. And there's always some schmoe on the news who revisited the killings. I moved before the big Zodiac book hit, so everything from then on, including the assertion as to just who was the Zodiac killer, was something I missed. I was very excited going into this movie. I loved SE7EN to death and the idea of Fincher taking on the Zodiac killer sounded great to me. I prepared myself for a different film from SE7EN thanks to some early word on the film and I'm glad I did because there's very little resemblance to Fincher's previous serial killer movie. What is similar is the level of talent in front of the camera working at their absolute best. You have Jake Gyllenhaal, Robert Downey Jr., Mark Ruffalo, Brian Cox, Anthony Edwards, Chloe Sevigny, Elias Koteas (Casey Jones!), Donal Logue, Philip Baker Hall and even Charles Fleischer, Roger Rabbit himself! And they're all fucking great. Especially Robert Downey Jr. Downey plays a smart-ass reporter named Paul Avery who catches the eye of the Zodiac killer. Avery's a man of great ego, so this is very flattering, but soon the reality sinks in and Avery begins to have this haunted quality that was just fascinating to watch. The movie is long and as a result we spend different segments in the shoes of different players in the whole Zodiac story. It's not until the end that we really spend a lot of time with Gyllenhaal, which was really surprising to me, but this part of the film was filled with the most suspense, mainly because of all the characters Gyllenhaal's gets the closest to discovering the killer. There's a sequence in a house that had me tense. You also spend a lot of time with Anthony Edwards and Mark Ruffalo, two cops, partners, that spend decades tracking the Zodiac killer. The descent into obsession is fascinating to watch. It's fascinating because you see so many different characters become obsessed with the Zodiac. Avery, Gyllenhaal's Graysmith, the two cops... every main character. The killings are shown without much razzle-dazzle, making them feel very real, like you could be sitting there with the victims. Fincher's film feels epic and you really feel they left no stone unturned. Everything you can imagine wanting to see about the Zodiac case is up there, on the screen and you have one of our most interesting filmmakers bringing it to life with a brilliant cast. I highly recommend this one. -Quint quint@aintitcool.com

    Brevity can be the soul of wit, but brevity because you've only seen the trailer of this movie is something MUCH different. This was really more of an opinion than a review, and where I don't wanna hear about the sandwich, I WOULD like to hear some more details. Spoiler warnings can apply.

    Video

    by Quint

    It was shot on the Viper camera, as I understand it, which is a completely uncompressed digital format. To be honest, the cinematography wasn't all that amazing, but it didn't really look cheap or anything. I wasn't impressed with the Viper camera, especially when you go and look at Fincher's film work and how rich and beautiful his blacks and browns/golds are.

    PS

    by Quint

    Sorry for the short review. Didn't intend to stiff anybody, just had to pound it out before I could run my last minute pre-flight errands. Exciting stuff like... buying a new toothbrush and running my sweaters through the dryer. I just figured that if you don't know anything about the Zodiac killings you'll want the movie to tell you, not me, and if you do know about the Zodiac killings you don't need me to tell you everything Fincher is doing.<BR><BR>By the way, when I said the movie is long, I meant the running time is over 2 1/2 hours. It does feel like you see a lot of movie, but it isn't watch-checking long. The characters are always well worth watching, even when the suspense is light. So, there's a couple appendices to the review. A little better?

    sitting with victims

    by Napoleon Park

    "The killings are shown without much razzle-dazzle, making them feel very real, like you could be sitting there with the victims." -- Speak for yourself, all of my killings are quite spectacular with all the razzle dazzle you might expect. Pyrotechnic and celebratory of all things murderous. (I refer to my fictional work, of course.)

    I guess I'm shocked to hear about the meh...

    by Childe Roland

    ...cinematography, as well. Fincher's visuals have been pretty powerful in the past. Haunting, even. None of that going on here at all? So all the killings play out like that scene in Se7en where Pitt cacks John Doe? I mean, that one was powerful because of its simplicity juxtaposed with all the death we'd seen prior, but if all the deaths in Zodiac are like that, what generates the fascination/obsession for these characters?

  • Feb. 22, 2007, 4:21 p.m. CST

    woah Quint, perfunctory much?

    by newc0253

    you say you liked the film but i get about zero sense of any emotional engagement other than guff like "I felt tense watching one scene in the house". you felt tense? really? during a movie about a serial killer? wow, that david fincher, he a master filmmaker, huh? i'm pleased that you skipped the whole "what i had for breakfast a week before i saw the movie" schtick that harry does with his reviews, but at least harry and moriaty manage to convey some sense of how the film made them feel, how they engaged with it, how it entered their head. i got nothing from your review except that it isn't much like se7en. thanks, buddy. kudos.

  • Feb. 22, 2007, 5:27 p.m. CST

    Yeah, that review was pretty much useless to me.

    by JackBauer24

    It wasn't that the review itself was bad... if it had been a review for some cool little film you'd seen on the off-chance. But the fact is that the reason we all come to this site is not for standard, objective, local paper-style, 500 word reviews. The reason we come here is so that when DAVID F'n FINCHER's new movie is reviewed it is treated with the respect it deserves. It is a BIG DEAL. I'm not saying you have to like the movie, but Jesus, put some fucking heart into it. Is Fincher back on his A-Game, is it as good as Seven, Fight Club? I mean those were two of the greatest movies of the 90s! But to come here and get a quick: 'oh, btw saw Zodiac, it was cool. Now, what's for tea?' is just not on. Moriarty's about the only one I can read on this site anymore since Harry started putting grotesque imagery of him and his bloody fiancee into every review. *sigh*

    Fincher

    by SanityKaos

    The review was fine...I dig Fincher but I must confess I have yet to see Panic Room....You can't be too mad at the guy for Alien 3, he was probably just trying to make whatever film he could to get out of music videos and into filmmaking (and that movie sucked cause the story was bad, not the directing)...I seem to remember talk about Fincher wanting to make and interesting fim called "The Passenger"....Anyone know what happened with that?

  • Feb. 22, 2007, 6:37 p.m. CST

    My problem with Fincher is that he's visually...

    by rbatty024

    proficient but sometimes he loses control over the story. The Game was an interesting idea but you could poke holes in the premise all day long (how did they know exactly where Michael Douglas was going to jump off the building at the end?) Fight Club had some great moments (especially ending it with The Pixies) but the twist took us out of the film right before he was starting to critique the Fascist element of Fight Club, and ultimately made the film eerily close to Fascist propoganda. And Edward Norton shooting himself in the head smacks of poor writing. Sometimes my vitriol at the guy is merely because I know he can do better.

    by JackBauer24

    Seven is not 'whack'. It's like the greatest serial killer movie of.. well, at *least* the 90s (yes, better than Silence of the Lambs - by a country mile). Of course, difference of opinion is a wonderful thing and the world would be a very boring place if we all agreed all the time but the fact remains that I'm right and you're not. Seven rocks.

  • Feb. 22, 2007, 8:17 p.m. CST

    Kipkinkel..

    by Gwai Lo

    "No track record whatsoever" is a little harsh when he has some genre classics under his belt, like it or not the man has directed some of the most well received films of the 90s. Calling the Game awful and Panic Room terrible is a bit ridiculous. I didn't like Panic Room all that much but there is no need to be so ruthlessly hyperbolic. Especially when so much of what comes out every year has no authorial stamp on it, just mindless studio crap that's directed by some mindless studio director. I am not even all that crazy about Fincher, and maybe I'll agree that he is a bit overrated, but he has definitely earned his stripes as a director with films that, if not entirely without flaws, are always very well made and entertaining.

    by AnnoyYou

    I'm glad it's a good film, because it went over budget and way over schedule, mainly because (from the accounts of two people I know who worked on it) Fincher is a raving lunatic. He made everyone's life a living hell on the shoot -- but I suppose that doesn't matter if the end result is good.

    Film vs Digital

    by Bronx Cheer

    People get too hung up on film vs HD. Superman Returns was Panavision's Genesis, as was Apocalypto. The Viper makes good pictures, but the Genesis is a much better "movie" camera. And if you want blacks, you want to use HD. Film sucks with blacks and shadow detail. HD doesn't like whites and brightness. They're both valid tools, yielding different results.

    It's Been So Long Since a Fincher Film

    by Professor Krapp

    His Alien movie wasn't bad, but it wasn't great. The Game was a lot of fun, but totally improbable. Se7en was great, still the best thing he's done. Fight Club was a bunch of fun, but it wasn't great, and Panic Room was really good, but nowhere near great. So I'd really like Zodiac to hit it out of the proverbial ballpark. The Professor is worried about this one.

    Oh, And I Once Thought I Knew the Zodiac Killer

    by Professor Krapp

    Or at least I once thought I knew who he was. I've since abandoned that theory, but I had some good evidence, and it creeped me out for quite a while. I know the case well, and was around it all when it was happening, so I think that raises my expectations of the movie. It is one of the most fascinating cases of its kind. Strange that it hasn't been a movie sooner...

  • Feb. 23, 2007, 12:08 a.m. CST

    Thanks Knight, Bronx

    by half vader

    I was confusing Supes with Collateral. Interesting how the tech has improved at a rate of knots from the dodgy noisy shadow detail and blacks in SW Ep. 2 (which was streets ahead of the underwater and Qui-gon stuff in Ep.1) to the dark Collateral stuff and on to where it is now. I don't remember the icky halo highlights being present in Supes (the dvd quality is a bit lousy to tell) but yeah it seems like that's the one they need to kick. I like that with SED (if it ever turns up) and plasma 2.0 we'll be able to watch 7 and Fight Club as they were meant to be seen with truly black blacks. I would have loved to see a film print with the silver retention process though. Again, it's probably my faulty memory but I thought the Genesis had 4:4:4 all the way through (except for live monitor output or something)?

    It's a long story

    by Professor Krapp

    I was going to school (Jr. High) in Berkeley during the Zodiac killings and was engrossed by the whole thing. I read everything I could find on the case, newspaper clippings, magazines, books, blah blah blah. Flash forward to the early 80s and I'm in college in Oregon, and I get to know one of my Professors. And his interests were the same that the Zodiac displayed, especially in Gilbert and Sullivan and puzzles and cryptograms. He was quite brilliant. One of the books I read claimed that Zodiac was a prominent member of society in a neighboring state, and this particular Prof. was quite well known. Also creepy. And his name was related to one of the signs of the Zodiac. Anyway, I worked myself into a froth over the whole thing, and found all these parallels that convinced me he was the guy. I even reported my suspicions to the police. They probably thought (rightly so) that I was using drugs. One drunken night I called this Professor, and flat out accused him of being the Zodiac. His response wasn't to deny it, or ask who I was or even to just hang up. He just said "What if I am?" I hung up. And he sounded so fucking creepy. I graduated soon after that and left the state. I think now it was just youthful exuberance and an active imagination. I think. The Professor has said too much. I will go now.

    Quint- Amazing how far Fincher's come since Alien3, eh?

    by GreatWhiteNoise

    I remember cursing his name to the heavens after that hatchet job, where Ridley Scott and The King Of The World had done such fine work. But just about everything since then (Se7en, Fight Club, Panic Room) has been pretty tight. The Game was a little hokey, but even it kinda worked in the end. So it's good to hear positive buzz on this.

    before he even came on and the nightmares never really stopped. Most anybody who's read anything about Alien 3 knows Fincher did the best he could in an impossible situation. Having said all that, has anyone seen that big-arse dog alien Sideshow had at the New York Toyfair? Super expensive but damn is it cool.

    Yeah, Seven ain't "whack"...

    by JimmyLoneWolf

    I don't see how time has been unkind to it...has society really changed that much since it came out? I still think its his best overall film...but Fight Club and The Game are both very good movies that come extremely close to perfection. I do agree with the poster who said ending Fight Club the way Fincher did enhances its fascistic elements...but its still a really cool ending and makes the film MORE controversial than the book! A good thing. Fincher is great.

  • Feb. 23, 2007, 9:02 a.m. CST

    What I REALLY don't get...

    by JimmyLoneWolf

    ...is the continued hate for Panic Room. Everyone from friends I've watched it with, to a film professor, have derided this film. I just don't see what the problem is...its his least ambitious film, to be sure, but its very entertaining and as a Hitchcockian popcorn movie I think it succeeds admirably. In fact, it reminds me of Rear Window made with the benefit of digital technology. The cinematography is great from start to finish and the film is a superb example of "rollercoater ride" filmmaking. Absolutely his most underrated film!! Give it another chance...

    'panic room' isn't a patch on 'rear window'

    by newc0253

    but it's still a solid piece of entertainment. even at his worst (alien 3), fincher's stuff is fantastically atmospheric. 'panic room' isn't anything like as good as 'se7en' or 'fight club' but i certainly didn't hate it.

    There is a lot of people in this room who think they know shit but they are way off base! They are so leftfield that they cannot even see the bogie on the end of ther noses! I would love to slap ZombieSolutions and KipKinkel to this side of sunday! Come on boys - stop being jealous of Brad, he gets pussy - YOU DON'T!

    KipKinkel, it's MORE powerful with Mills not dying.

    If you can't see that you probably think Brazil didn't have a happy ending (no I'm not talking about the bastardised version). I find it completely bizarre you say FC has no 'rewatchability', too. Oh to be as cooler-than-thou as you. "Seven was good in the theatre but sucked on video." Jesus Christ, as Mr. Slave would say. Slap away, Guard.

    I had a look at your blog. Fucking scary, and not too bright. And was that even a sentence (most directors great)?
