breaking bad

Zodiac

I went to see Zodiac yesterday, the new film by David Fincher. It's a long and detailed film, and it doesn't have a satisfying punchy structure, because it is based on a real life murder case which fizzled on without proper resolution for decades. It's about people growing old with an open investigation. Some of the scenes are exceptional, and it's a grown-up kind of film which conveys emotion without pandering to it. It portrays murder as the crappy act of a crappy pathetic person. It's got some very funny lines.
