Will the Real Zodiac Please Stand Up?

By S.T. VanAirsdale

Reeler HQ opened for business this morning with the following note kicked under the door:

The Film Society of Lincoln Center will host a rare appearance by director David Fincher at the Walter Reade Theater, Monday, Nov. 19 at 6:30 p.m. An Evening with David Fincher will also feature a screening of the director’s cut of Fincher’s most recent film, Zodiac. ... It was initially released to U.S. theaters in March, before an acclaimed reception at the Cannes Film Festival, grossing more than $75 million worldwide. The new director’s cut is approximately seven minutes longer than the theatrical version.

While I thought Zodiac was serviceable enough, I didn't quite get the raves for this film upon its release. In any case, I'm sure the additional seven minutes will unlock whatever secrets the original 160-minute version couldn't articulate, and I'm always up for a good auteurist studio-spanking from the stage at the Walter Reade. (Will there be more Gyllenhaal spanking as well? God, if you're listening...) Look for us there.

Tickets are $40 general admission, $30 for Film Society members and students; they'll be available any time now at the FSLC Web site.
