Please help me I am drownding: San Francisco’s Dark Decade
dir. David Fincher
Director David Fincher (SE7EN, THE SOCIAL NETWORK) conducted his own eighteen-month investigation of the Zodiac killer’s reign of terror before making this vivid and absorbing dramatization.

A fine cast (including Jake Gyllenhaal, Robert Downey Jr., and Mark Ruffalo) helped Fincher meticulously re-create San Francisco during this period, resulting in one of this century’s greatest Hollywood movies. (2007, 162 min, 35mm)
