Over at Movie City News, screenwriter Larry Gross has penned the most provocative review of Fincher’s Zodiac yet.

His lede:

Zodiac is an important postmodern work. It’s an authentically “new” and even experimental thing attempting, to quote from Susan Sontag’s essay “Against Interpretation,” to put content in its place. It’s very very much a film constructed on a 21st century conception of information as a non-substantive, purely relational digital phenomenon, and the fact that it was shot on video and exists immaterially as digital information is thus not a merely decorative issue but crucial to its meaning.
