(USA, 2007, 152 minutes)

The chase for the Zodiac, a serial killer that terrorized the Bay Area between 1968 and 1974, overcomes the personal lifes of a reporter, a cartoonist and the police detective assigned to the case. Stodgy, long-winded procedural that succeeds as an intriguing study in obsession but doesn’t quite succeed as a conventional thriller.
