    “I am not the Zodiac. And if I were, I certainly wouldn't tell you.”

    Zodiac, a movie that I would describe as a movie with two different halfs. The first half, the investigation into who is the Zodiac. The second half, a better and more successful non-official investigation by Jake Gyllenhaal.

    The first half of this movie is pretty disappointing. I find the Zodiac Killer a pretty interesting case since they…

    “As Lenin said, There is no profit in last week's fish.”
