Hey, where’s Todd McCarthy‘s Zodiac review in Variety? Somebody must have weighed in since my Friday posting. Less than three weeks before it opens…hubba-hubba.

“Agree about Zodiac,” a Manhattan-based journalist wrote this morning. “I think the Fincher fanatics, and I mean the fan boys who geek out over Fight Club, might find this film, which is terrific, a disappointment. It’s too cerebral, too procedural…too much about how this frustrating case takes over the lives of the three leads. What it’s not is a thrill-a-minute ride a la Seven. Which is maybe why Paramount is a little afraid of it. But whoo, boy, it sure delivers the goods in just about every other way. And the leads are great.”
