This is a featurette on the DVD of Zodiac, obviously going into that film. It consists of behind-the-scenes footage inter-cut with interviews and some clips of the movie. You get to see a little of a scene that is not in the theatrical version, which is kind of cool. This gives you an idea of just how accurate a recreation of the actual events this is, largely due to the attention to detail and perfectionism of Fincher. You hear from people who were actually involved in the case, including the real Robert Graysmith, who was portrayed on-screen by Jake Gyllenhaal, and they reveal the immense lengths that the makers of this went to, to ensure that it was true to life. There are personal accounts of how it was to at least hear about the case, back in the 60's and 70's, how it affected people and the way they thought about things, including from the director himself. Downey Jr. talks about his performance. This is well-edited and well-paced, the 27 minutes pass without any boredom. It's quite informative, and you get genuine insight into the process of David, and how it was to have the press constantly mentioning the killer while he was active. I recommend this to anyone who is interested in the subject. 7/10
