Zodiac (David Fincher, 2007) 11.20pm, BBC Two
David Fincher offers a grim, handsomely crafted thriller about the real-life case of a serial killer beginning in late-60s San Francisco. Leading the hunt are cocky cop Mark Ruffalo and cerebral newspaper cartoonist Jake Gyllenhaal, and it’s as much about the personal toll of their years-long quest as it is a detective story.
