Between the final draft of my novel and a long stint as an alternate juror in the Kings County Supreme Court, I haven't had time for many movies, but I finally saw Zodiac this afternoon. I'm still trying to piece together my own reactions to this huge, obsessive film, but I'll go on the record as saying that this is one of the most technically accomplished movies I've ever seen, and that its astonishing digital photography makes it emphatically worth catching on the big screen before it disappears. On its own terms, it's awesomely perfect; I'm just not sure if those terms are the same as mine.

Stanley Kubrick would have been proud to have made this movie. Make of that what you will.
