Zodiac - 2007

Director: David Fincher
Writer: James Vanderbilt
Starring: Jake Gyllenhaal, Robert Downey Jr., Mark Ruffalo, John Carroll Lynch, Brian Cox

"If you go one mile east on Columbus Parkway, to a public park, you'll find kids in a brown car. They were shot with a 9mm Luger. I also killed those kids last yea. Goodbye..."A cartoonist (Gyllenhaal), a reporter (Downey) and a cop (Ruffalo) all become engaged in a dangerous game of cat-and-mouse in an attempt to stop a serial killer.

While slow in parts, this is one of the closest to perfect examples of a film I've ever seen. When the credits rolled, my first thought was "Why doesn't Fincher have an Oscar yet?" I challenge you to feel differently. A+
