      A return to form for David Fincher

      "Gone Girl" felt like a return to form for David Fincher, and I mean that in an entirely positive way. Sometimes "return to form" might imply a deficit on the part of the creator/auteur, but in this case I refer to Fincher's return to the thriller genre he tends to show great understanding of, such as in Zodiac and Seven. His absence has in no way been due to lack of talent on his part, as his work with The Social Network and tv's House of Cards has been more than solid. Gone Girl's pacing and process of revelation amid twists, turns, and manipulation would grant you forgiveness for forgetting that the film runs nearly two and a half hours, as nearly every scene and moment of dialogue feels purposeful and valuable in explaining the characters and film's mystery to us. Said pacing and tone is subtly but oh so importantly augmented by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross' haunting score of synth and occasional strings and minimalist percussive beats that occasionally swell to the risk of explosion. Ben Affleck gives us a performance as a man teetering on the knife edge of anger and despair that risks implosion on either side as he investigates the disappearance of his wife, as portrayed by Rosamund Pike. Affleck's character borders on sinking into aggressive madness as the film develops, and all tides seemingly threaten to consume him. Pike's performance is varied and tense in such a manner that the film's tension and mystery during her absence in various scenes is heightened all the more as we see things unravel towards the conclusion. I could easily see an Oscar nomination arising for her due to this role. Neil Patrick Harris and Tyler Perry deliver engaging supportive roles along with Carrie Coon and Kim Dickens. This is certainly a thriller but in more the slow-burn kind of way. We aren't hit an onslaught of revelations, actions, or tension. Rather, the tension develops itself organically and dynamically just on the edge of our minds, almost becoming a separate character in the film. What I felt most prominently in the film is manipulated as a viewer, and I say that as a compliment. We have a natural tendency at times to side with various characters as a story develops, often seeking to identify a clear-cut antagonist and protagonist that we can easily demonize and champion. While I felt my mind and thought process gravitating towards these relatively natural conceptualizations, by the film's end I realized I had been unknowingly and subversively driven out of this process by the film's own machinations and manipulation of its characters. I could in no way cleanly or easily designate the characters' archetypes, despite the dissonance my mind experienced in trying to naturally do so. Gone Girl is easily a firm contender for Oscar acknowledgement between Fincher's direction, Reznor and Ross' score, Pike's acting prowess, and the structure and delivery of the film as a whole. Welcome back, David.

      Gone Girl took the world by storm. And I'm not just talking about the film. The book (I highly recommend this read) by Gillian Flynn quickly became one of the bestselling novels of 2012. Through word of mouth, people left and right were finding out about this tale of a dark and twisted marriage. It was seen almost everywhere, so I was no surprise that the rights would be snatched up (by Reese Witherspoon, nonetheless). And the stage was quickly set for David Fincher to work his dark directing magic. The story tells of a married couple, Nick and Amy Dunne, on their fifth wedding anniversary. That morning, Amy mysteriously vanishes, leaving behind a rather suspicious trail of evidence.The authorities and the media quickly swoop down on Nick, who seems nice enough, but is oddly evasive and may not be telling the whole truth. As events unfold, you will be left wondering how well you truly know the person you love. With jaw-dropping performances from Ben Affleck, Rosamund Pike, Tyler Perry, Carrie Coon, Neil Patrick Harris, and Patrick Fugit, you will be in for a treat. These actors portray their respective roles with such power and perfection, and I was pleasantly surprised. I think you will be as well. I expect to see award nominations for these players within the coming weeks. If not, I will riot. Not only is the acting fantastic, but the score paints a beautiful picture as well. Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross (who scored Fincher's last two films--The Social Network and The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo) have returned to deliver an astounding and haunting score that perfectly suits the story. Equally peaceful and disturbing, it mirrors the characters' behaviours as their secrets are unveiled. Gone Girl is the complete package. Creepy, witty, breathtaking, you will finish this movie with your jaw open. I guarantee it. Truly beautiful, Fincher has outdone himself. I recommend purchasing this at your earliest opportunity.

      This is not an entirely new idea in film or literature but, for my dollar, this is the best. Here's the scoop. Nick Dunne (Ben Affleck) is from Missouri but works as a writer in New York. He meets and marries Amy (Rosamund Pike), another writer, and the two have a seemingly great marriage. Hard times and Nick's mom's illness send them back to Missouri where the marriage becomes strained. Next thing you know, Amy has disappeared and Nick is charged with her murder. But all is not as it seems. Whatever great things you've heard about this flick are entirely true. It's about as good a movie as I've ever seen. And at a two and a half hour running time it will keep you riveted start to finish, which is saying a lot. Gillian Flynn, who adapted the script from her novel did a sweet job. All the scenes are written well as are the characters. Too often the secondary characters in a film are given short shrift. Not the case here. Even the smallest roles are paid great attention. Scoot McNairy has only one scene, but his acting, and the way the scene is written, are a testament to the overall quality of the writing. The same goes for Nick's sister's character. It would be difficult for me to imagine a better written character. And the story itself is tremendously clever to boot. The zingers just keep on coming to throw the viewer off what could have been a well worn path. This is particularly true of the ending. The viewer wants a certain ending and they won't get it here. This one takes a higher, more interesting, road. A special hat's off to Rosamund Pike. Watching her transform her character is something to behold. Her eyes speak volumes and seeing her at the end will send shivers up your spine. I like David Fincher. He's had more hits than misses during his career and this, for my dollar, is his best. If mystery thrillers are your poison, this will do you in.

      Nine Things About the Movie "Gone Girl" (USA, 2014) 1. One of the best movies of 2014, this multi-layered, wickedly brilliant film is a great adaptation of the 2012 novel. 2. It was directed by David Fincher. He collaborated with Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross again for the smoothly foreboding soundtrack. Fincher has developed a unique cinematic style, and this movie is a showcase of it. 3. The heart of the movie is a mystery - a wife disappears from her home on the morning of her anniversary. But not only do we not know who did it, we don’t even really know what happened. 4. The movie flips back and forth between the husband’s perspective and the wife’s, slowly unfolding its secrets like a black, poisonous flower. 5. Besides the core mystery, the movie is also a commentary on media hype, along with trial by popularity. Nancy Grace probably wishes she could sue somebody for this movie. 6. Perhaps more chilling than the mystery is the depiction of what has to be the most dysfunctional marriage in cinematic history. 7. The movie is almost 3 hours long, but it doesn’t feel like it. The plot is tight - no scene is wasted. The dialogue is snappy and razor-sharp. The acting is awesome, from the main characters all the way down to minor roles. 8. Part of the reason the movie works so well is that the author of the book, Gillian Flynn, also wrote the screenplay. It’s set in Missouri and feels pretty authentic, probably because the author is from Kansas City. 9. A movie about passion, lies, obsession, the death of love, and living with sociopaths, this is a remarkable movie.

      I saw this twice in theaters and was completely hooked the whole way through! I did not read the book like some, and in fact, I had no idea the movie was based off a book until after seeing it. What really helped to enhance my experience on the first viewing was that I knew absolutely nothing of this movie whatsoever. I had not seen a single trailer, nor did I know the premise. (If only that was how it was with every movie I've seen.) The story was great in the sense that just when you think you've predicted one thing, you'll find out that not only were you wrong, but the movie shifted in a completely different direction entirely. The acting was also very well done, especially Rosamund Pike which easily pulls off one of the best roles of her career. This is a dark, and often very graphic movie that still manages to maintain a certain balance of suspense, sexuality, mystery, and even an occasional chuckle here and there (which doesn't seem out of place either). If you are looking for a good suspense thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat, look no further! Turn down the lights, kick back and enjoy the ride!

      I had to give it four stars for the movie. It could have been five if not for the ending. I kind of get what the writer was going for. They didn't want that cookie cutter ending where everything is resolved. But this movie kind of needed it. The last 15 minutes, I kept saying, "I hope it's not a lame ending." I was disappointed. In real life I think it's safe to say this woman would never get away with this stuff. At the end they say the FBI will look at it. Well I don't think they did. The main cop pretty much caught her out in the hospital but then it's ignored. It's obvious that Ben Affleck's character didn't buy all that stuff. There are cameras all over NPH's house that show her walking around the house freely beforehand. The police station would have had caller ID showing the call that came in to complain about the woodshed would have came from far away. I hated how much of a wuss Ben Affleck was at the end. I would never be able to sleep again at night. And lastly, it's obvious that this woman is insane since she has cried wolf a lot in her life and her once solid evidence against her husband, doesn't add up anymore after she turns up alive.
