“The title character ofis born on the fourth of July: as bombs burst in air on Independence Day, 1969, an All-American couple are gunned down in Vallejo, California as their car radio blares Donovan’s peace-and-love anthem “Hurdy Gurdy Man.” The idea of a spectral outsider intruding on everyday life gives David Fincher’s thriller its metaphysical heft; adapted from Robert Graysmith’s true-crime accounts of the decades-long search for a serial killer whose physical elusiveness was matched by his pop-cultural omnipresence, transcends its own procedural tropes to offer a meditation on the relationship between time and obsession. The further the ‘s crimes recede into history, the more determined amateur sletuth Graysmith (Jake Gyllenhaal) is to solve them; whether he’s driven by a sense of justice, morbid curiosity or defiance of the uncertainty principle is as difficult to identify as his quarry.
