The gritty, realistic Zodiac is easily one of my favorite films of the year so far, and I am stunned to see how much of it was CGI:

That is one of the things I really appreciate about Fincher’s work. He uses CGI as a tool, and you miss it-unless the point is for you to notice it (such as the scenes in Fight Club where the catalog descriptions appear in Norton’s apartment). I wish more directors used CGI as effectively.
THAT is the kind og CGI I like…the kind you just don’t see.I find too much of it distracting…
