1) I’d heard a lot of good things about Gone Girl. 2) I want to keep up with this Ben Affleck renaissance that’s been plenty discussed since Argo (2012). 3) Gone Girl is based on a successful book…
All these are reasons I knew I’d watch David Fincher’s latest. Mr Fincher himself is of course another reason.
Written by Gillian Flynn and very well acted by its stars, Rosamund Pike especially and Ben Affleck. You’ll be left impressed and probably more than a little scared if not more careful.
Having seen it, I count myself amongst the wowed. I don’t feel the same disappointment some have expressed at the ending. For me it felt just right somehow.
This is a brilliant mystery/ drama/ thriller of a movie. Regardless of the inherent darkness of the story, you’ll have no regrets. Just don’t make the same mistakes as the characters. I.e. Be sure to communicate with your partner when things are bothering you.
Happy Film Loving 🙂
