Memories of a Zodiac Killer - Perspectives & Perceptions

by Channel Criswell

Comparisons between Bong Joon-ho’s Memories of Murder and David Fincher’s Zodiac are apt. They’re both mystery films about a serial killer, based on true events, involving an investigation thwarted by dead ends, and ending with a lack of complete closure. In this video essay, Channel Criswell examines a few things that sets these films apart—the passage of time, the perspective each film is told from, and how audience perspectives are woven into the films.
