Notes from the Manager
So I saw Zodiac, and I really liked it. In fact, I like it more and more as I keep turning it over and over in my head. I'm tempted to see it again while it's still in the theaters, just to take it in on a technical level, since I was "distracted" by having to follow the entire, fascinating story this first time around.
Phenomenal cast, terrifically (and atypically) understated direction from David Fincher, and -- in my apparently somewhat unusual opinion -- not a second wasted in its 2:40 running time. I'd talk about it a bit more here, but I think we're going to be talking about Zodiac on the Triple Feature talkcast tonight... I should probably talk to the boys about it.
EDIT: Incidentally, for those in the dark, the line is from Dirty Harry, which was very loosely based on the Zodiac murders. So the two films are two very very different approaches to more or less the same subject matter.

This is the final version of the Multiplex animated short I made for my Animation class this semester. No promises, but hopefully this will be the first of many! Thanks (again) to Matt Matonich for providing the voice of Kurt!
Some of you will recognize Jason’s final line as a title of Multiplex #285, so I’m sort of recycling something here, but not really. In any case, Jason and Kurt being in red vests is an indication that these shorts take place outside of current Multiplex continuity.
