The Hell With This Podcast #37 - Zodiac

Post by Chad Peter » Thu Oct 19, 2017 1:21 pm

This is one of those slow-burn modern-classic films that only David Fincher could have directed.  Mark and Chad discuss, well - is it a "classic"?  Chad seems to think so.  Mark isn't as certain.  One thing is for sure, however: the film didn't play well on first viewing, but ultimately gets much, much better on repeat viewings.  Is that because it breaks the modern storytelling tropes?  Does it break traditional structure?  Does the film climax?

Will all these questions be answered here?  Probably not, but we'll touch on some of it.

Interesting take on the film. Whilst, not Fincher's best, I always liked this one.

Shut up, Chad. We were interesting. Take the compliment and lock this thread before he can take it back.

Didn't know the stuff about Graysmith being unreliable. I thought you made an interesting point about the characters never really feeling in danger.

Also I really need to sit down and watch Mind Hunter.

I don't even remember saying that.

And yes. Yes, you do. :-D
