A Piece of Craftsmanship
Based on true events taken from Robert Graysmith's books and criminal case files, this movie will have you engrossed from the first minutes to the end credits.
Jake Gyllenhal plays Rober Graysmith, a cartoonist for a large newspaper, who becomes entangled and ultimately obsessed with the Zodiac, a serial killer who in the 60's and 70's wrote to newspapers claiming responsibility for various murders. Also entangled in the web is co-newspaper man Paul Avery (Robert Downey Jr.) and lead investigator David Toschi (Mark Ruffalo), both men wrapped up too tight in the Zodiac for their own good.
A true thriller, Zodiac will have you watching so intensely you'll forget your even watching a movie.
