Zodiac * David Fincher (2007)

A film about the serial killer that called himself Zodiac from David Fincher whom we all known for films such as “Se7en”, “Fight Club” and “The Strange Case Of Benjamin Button”. Ficher took over 2,5 hours to tell the story of the killer of whom it is not with certainty known who he was. The film is based on the book by Robert Graysmith. Actually, the film is about how Graysmith wrote his book.
Graysmith was a cartoonist for one of the newspapers that received information of the media-horny Zodiac killer. Even when the Zodiac became less active, Graysmith continued his investigations.
The first part of the film is a thriller. We see the Zodiac performing his hideous crimes. Lateron the focus shifts more to the investigations and then to Graysmith. Obvious is the despair of not being able to find and catch the killer. The film has a good atmosphere and gives an interesting insight into a gruely story.

Nicholas Winding weekend

Last weekend I have rewatched both “Drive” (2011) and “Only God Forgives” (2013). The films are very similar, yet very different. Both have Ryan Gosling as poker-faced main character. In both films Goslings character is involved in illegal activities, but does not really seem to want to. Of course, both films are slow and minimalistic. [...]

No blog

A “blog” with one entry every two years, that is quite cool, is it not?

It has been a couple of years since I added “blogs” to the different sections so I could share information other than reviews. Looking back, I am not entirely sure what kind of information I had in mind. I [...]

Fantasy bombast

During two airplaneflights I have killed some time watching to fantasy spectacles. First the lauded “Avatar”, second the first “Hobbit”. I did not expect “Avatar” to be some sort of “Matrix”, but the famous blue characters inhabit some sort of ‘inbetweenworld’ that men can only come using some sort of machine. The film is an [...]
