Zodiac never veers from its stoically gripping, police-blotter tone, yet it begins to take on the quality of a dream.

Its most impressive accomplishment is to gather a bewildering labyrinth of facts and suspicions over a period of years, and make the journey through this maze frightening and suspenseful.
Firing on all cylinders as a creepy thriller, police procedural and "All the President's Men"-style investigative newsroom drama, the smart, extremely vivid production oozes period authenticity.
This is the rare movie that blends long scenes of meticulous research with a sweeping story and sustains a feeling of riveting suspense. Zodiac grips you by the throat and doesn't let go.
The film feels self-obsessed, an intriguing drama that slowly devolves into a bleak meditation on the absence of dramatics.
