If Fincher was looking to out do himself...he has succeeded. (by trublu215)
Gone Girl marks Fincher's tenth feature film and his most mature work since Fight Club. Centering on Nick Dunne, a husband desperately trying to find his wife all while having police and media accuse him of murder. The story sounds straight out of the Scott Peterson case and the film looks unlike any film I've seen in recent years. Lead by an all star cast featuring Ben Affleck, Rosamund Pike, Tyler Perry and Neil Patrick Harris, Gone Girl rises above the pack with smart storytelling, phenomenal pacing and perfect performances. What Gone Girl does so brilliantly is taps into the <more>
audience's psyche regarding marriage and the ideology behind a sanctioned union that is corrupt. It is really heavy stuff when the story really gets to the meat and bones of it all. With plenty of twists and turns, Gone Girl keeps you, not only second guessing the whole idea of marriage, but the intentions of every character in the film. It is truly one of the most twisted films adapted from an even sicker and twisted book that's out there right now. Gillian Flynn does wonders with her adaption from her own novel. The dialog is crisp, the characters are multi-layered, it truly is a pitch perfect script that doesn't have one false moment in it. Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike are EXCELLENT in this film. This is a different Affleck, a very human and realized Affleck. Nick Dunne is a wonderful role for him and captivates just how good he can be with a terrific director. Harris and Perry give well rounded performances as well but are nothing compared to Affleck and Pike. David Fincher and his long time collaborator and cinematographer, Jeff Cronenweth create a dreary, horrific tone for Gone Girl that makes every twist and turn that much more gut wrenching. Every shot is meticulously planned, showing each shot as if it were a still frame that spoke a thousand words. It is truly gorgeous filmmaking. And now for the score...Trent Reznor and Atticus Finch deliver a perfect score, besting their Social Network and Girl with the Dragon Tattoo score. If Reznor won for Social Network, I fully expect not only a nomination but a win for this film. Overall, this is a mesmerizing film that demands multiple viewings to truly get the full experience. It is impeccably made, beautifully acted and an all around near perfect film.
How on earth is this film attracting so much criticism?! This is one of the best films of 2014 and people are labelling it "utter tripe", "an enormous heap of illogic and nonsense", "wish I had missed it". Are these people serious? Can we no longer appreciate - or even identify - a great film?!Gone Girl is a peerless plot-driven story about a wife who goes missing. Seems pretty ordinary, right? Well it's not. And it doesn't take very long at all for any sane viewer to recognise this. You start watching and - as you do with any mystery - you start <more>
collecting the clues and piecing together an explanation for the events which have taken place. But no sooner than you have formed the perfect explanation in your mind is it immediately swept away in the most overwhelming twist of the year. And it only gets better from there.Gone Girl is a roller-coaster; only you're riding it in the dark. You don't know where the next turn is, you can't see where you're headed, and you have no idea how many more ups and downs you're going to experience before it's all over. It's a film that keeps you guessing and just as you're beginning to once again think you've got it all figured out, the game changes and it's all up in the air once more. The diary-exposition format is also very clever and was executed perfectly. Many films fall victim to losing the viewer when jumping back and forth between past and present, yet Gone Girl - you guessed it - does it just right.This film ranks high in the mystery/thriller genre. It is just as compelling and perplexing as Shutter Island - if not then moreso. And let's not forget: the acting. Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike do a phenomenal job in their roles as husband and wife. Not a line feels out of place and both seem as though they were born to play Nick and Amy Dunne. By the end of the film I felt so immersed in their story that I found it hard to believe it was just a film. All in all, I for one am thoroughly pleased with Gone Girl. I knew from watching the trailer it would be something I would like, I just never imagined it could thrill me this much.A very underrated and overwhelming story that should be enjoyed by all.
Every single element is incredibly, undeniably good. (by BrentHankins)
My first exposure to Gone Girl came when I devoured Gillian Flynn's critically acclaimed novel in less than two days, frequently succumbing to thoughts of "just one more chapter" and finding myself still engrossed some 30 minutes later. With its captivating characters and painstakingly constructed mystery, Flynn's complex, multi-layered thriller was the very definition of "page turner," and when news broke that David Fincher was interested in bringing the novel to life, I couldn't think of a better pairing. On the morning of his fifth wedding anniversary, Nick <more>
Dunne Ben Affleck comes home to find the front door open, the glass coffee table in the living room destroyed, and his wife, Amy Rosamund Pike , nowhere to be found. Detective Rhonda Boney Kim Dickens and Officer Jim Gilpin Patrick Fugit are the first responders, and they immediately get the sense that Nick isn't telling them everything - for example, if the living room was the scene of a struggle, then why aren't any of the photos on the mantel turned over? That's just one of several unanswered questions that begin popping up as Nick is scrutinized, first by the police, and then by the media as Amy's disappearance quickly becomes headline news. Nick certainly doesn't seem like a guy distressed about his missing wife, and as Amy's diary entries presented as flashbacks begin filling in some of the blanks, we start to wonder just what else Nick might be hiding, and if he knows more about Amy's whereabouts than he's letting on. In a wise move that pays dividends in the finished product, Flynn herself was tapped to write the adaptation, stripping the story down to its most important elements while still maintaining the frequent juxtaposition between Nick and Amy's conflicting points of view. While some purists will complain that the film lacks much of the novel's nuance and subtleties, it's hard to find fault with a screenplay that was written by the author of the source material, particularly when the results are so impressive. Fincher's involvement is another necessary cog in the machine, as even with Flynn's screenplay this film could easily have fallen apart in the hands of a lesser talent. Never one to shy away from the darker side of humanity, Fincher obviously feels right at home playing in this sandbox and exploring the terrible things that a once-loving couple can do to each other in times of duress. This also marks Fincher's third collaboration with Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross, whose original score once again perfectly complements the visuals by accentuating, but never overpowering, the on screen proceedings. But even with all these elements in place, Gone Girl still wouldn't work without being anchored by absolutely stellar performances across the board. Pike is at her career best, particularly in the film's second half, and should find herself positioned as a major contender for this year's award season. Affleck is no slouch either, being tasked with a lot of the weightier moments and nailing them like a seasoned pro. Affleck expertly plays up Nick's winning smile and boyish charm, but there's also an almost uncontrollable rage bubbling just beneath the surface, and his portrayal should give those Batman v Superman detractors plenty to reconsider. Some audiences may balk at Gone Girl's 149-minute running time, but the film is so meticulously paced that it never really slows down long enough for moviegoers to glance at their watches. Each scene is allowed just enough time to breathe before we're rushing onward, and every single component is so incredibly, undeniably good that you won't want to miss a single second. Pound for pound, Gone Girl is 2014's best offering thus far, and should prove to be stiff competition for the rest of the year. -- Brent Hankins
Gone Girl is directed by the mastermind of David Fincher. Amazingly written by Gillian Flynn whom wrote the novel the film is based on. Starring Ben Affleck as Nick Dunne and Rosamund Pike as Amy Elliot Dunne. On the day of their 5th wedding anniversary Nick's wife, Amy disappears out of nowhere, and this crazy, intense and haunting journey begins. David Fincher and Gillian Flynn's intelligent storytelling trough out this fantastic journey will keep at the edge of your seat from start to end. The soundtrack and score is also very intense and haunting, and has huge impact on the film. <more>
The performances from all the actors, especially Rosamund Pike are top notch which really helps the element of the realism stand out in this film. Gone Girl is easily the best film I have seen this year so far, and I have to give it a 10/10. It is also one of the best films from David Fincher in my opinion. I strongly advice everyone to go and see Gone Girl, it is one thrilling ride.
It's a mistake to recruit the author to do the screenplay - they are too emotionally invested, and if they aren't known for writing scripts the disparity in quality can be obvious. Take The Exorcist III for example. Or Gone Girl.The Gone Girl novel was a lavishly praised exercise in cryptic dialogue, high school prose, and incompetent storytelling that defies conventional formula. Unfortunately, you can only defy the formula and get away with it if you are very good. Gillian Flynn just isn't. Her characters speak with bizarre, hyperactive energy that made me feel breathless just <more>
from reading it. It's like listening to someone recall a fond memory at a party - a memory that nobody else cares about. It's inexplicably cryptic. It's not how people talk, and you can tell that on screen Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike don't really know what to make of their lines. Their sentences are too long, too wild, too verbose. They talk like stage actors fresh out of drama school. The supporting cast are also similarly lost - the two detectives especially. The female cop is just a frustrating "loose- cannon-independent-woman/symbol-of-women's-suffrage" poster girl. She talks fast and drinks coffee - black, no doubt Yawn . Her male partner just seems to follow her around like a lost dog and nod agreeably with everything she says - three cheers for women's rights! Down with the glass ceiling! You might as well slap a domestic violence advertisement in the credits.The lack of tension evident in Flynn's writing translates well to the screen. Your nails will not be bitten to fleshy stubs watching Gone Girl. More likely you'll end up filing them into neat, buffed arches out of boredom. Fincher can't elevate the inherent drabness of the source material. He, like the rest of the cast, seem to misunderstand the script. They just "don't get it." Gone Girl is one of those wrongly-praised cause celebres. People are too keen to jump on the bandwagon after learning about the *gasp* "shock twist" in the final act that is hardly shocking, original, or interesting . Re-watch some of Fincher's better work instead. If you've already invested money in the novel, take solace in knowing it is the perfect size for a doorstop, and about as entertaining.
All the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players !!!!!! (by avik-basu1889)
I have always been a huge admirer of David Fincher. He is undoubtedly one of the most consistent and masterful storytellers in modern cinema. I also think when it comes to dark, disturbing thrillers, there is very few who can match the directorial skills of Fincher. Like many of his previous films, Gone Girl is a very long film, but in a true Fincher-esque fashion, it is as engaging as possible without any scope for the viewer to feel bored. The pacing is perfect. The scenes have a dreamy style to it, which brings the dilemma of "whether this is a true account of things or has this been <more>
made up by the narrator." The theme of the film is the fact that humans at the basic level are all actors and pretenders. Very seldom do we decide to be our real selves. Generally all of us put on a mask to make ourselves look good in front of the general public and also to pretend to be the person that our nearest and dearest want us to be. Gillian Flynn's screenplay based on her own novel is brilliant and it is also a damning indictment of how media can shape and mould mass perception and it is also a cynical account of the institution of marriage.Ben Affleck is good, Tyler Perry is good, but this movie from an acting perspective belongs to Rosamund Pike. She owns every scene that she is in and delivers an Oscar-worthy performance.Fincher has once again has made a fantastic film. The last 30 minutes might not be completely logical, but it is still symbolic. If you are about to get married,stay away from Gone Girl.
The basic premise is as old as the movies.An abduction leads to a media-circus. Nick Dunne Ben Affleck comes home one day to find his wife Amy Rosamund Pike missing. The ensuing search and all the subsequent events, which shall not be revealed here, draw the viewer closer and closer into a complex world of everyday suburban reality and everyday suburban horror.As if it needed to be pointed out, this balance of reality and horror, or horrendous reality, is the domain of Mr. Fincher. In his clear-cut no-nonsense style he has fashioned a powerful mystery-thriller that lands somewhere between <more>
Hitchcock, Lynch, Bergman and Chabrol. Although vastly different directors, they have shared an interest in dissecting reality and human nature. Profiting from two exceptional lead actors doubts about Mr. Affleck's acting abilities will hopefully be dispelled , it is Ms. Pike, who reveals herself as an immensely versatile and unpredictable force in this movie. Over more than ten years Ms. Pike has played big parts in small movies, or small parts in big movies such as Pride & Prejudice", Wrath of the Titans" or Jack Reacher" . Under the guise of Mr. Fincher she excels in every aspect and if any contenders for awards are to be named so early in the season, hers would be one of the first names next to the outstanding cast of Richard Linklaters Boyhood" to be written down. Visually stunning as one would expect from Fincher, with an immersive soundtrack by Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross and an editing rhythm that cuts like a knife through the tissue of the story and its characters, Gone Girl" leaves no doubt about its craft and the deceptive nature of its source novel by Gillian Flynn. The author adapted her book into a tightly wound screenplay, that adds fuel to an already burning analysis of modern marriage and human frailty.The themes are familiar to Fincher, but he assembles them in an expertly fashion. And we are left wondering, amidst the suspense, about many of the so called estimable American values of the 20th century, that have now come crashing down under the weight of an economic, political and spiritual crisis.
Two movies for the price of one. That's a fairly glib start to a review of a movie that I really liked, but it is true. The first half of Gone Girl is a fairly standard "did he or didn't he" mystery thriller. Then, about an hour in, the perspective shifts entirely and suddenly you realise that you're watching – perhaps – the most pitch-black comedy that you've ever seen. Despite the abrupt shift, I still think that Gone Girl holds together extremely well as one whole movie. Ben Affleck's Nick manages to inspire sympathy without ever being truly likable while <more>
Rosamund Pike's Amy the star of the show in my opinion is brilliant, terrifying, hilarious and despicable in various combinations and occasionally all at the same time.David Fincher's direction is both classy and clever as usual and several scenes are particularly outstanding due at least as much to his brilliance as that of the actors involved in them. My one complaint would be over the length – it really didn't need to be two and a quarter hours long. There were certainly a few moments, particularly in the first half, when I wished that the movie would hurry up and get to the point just a little more quickly.Gone Girl is a movie unlike any that I've ever seen before and as such largely defies further description. I would recommend this movie to all with a warning that the adult rating is well earned but especially those with a dark sense of humour. The darker the better.
"Gone Girl" is a thriller destined for 'vintage' status. (by ScottGentry)
"Gone Girl" 18 Directed by: David Fincher. Starring: Ben Affleck, Rosamund Pike, Tyler Perry, Neil Patrick Harris, Carrie Coon and Scoot McNairy. Rated: 18 for containing strong bloody violence and very strong language. Running time: 148 minutes, 51 seconds. Released in UK cinemas from Thursday, the 2nd of October, 2014. Earlier this year Gillian Flynn's best-selling novel, "Gone Girl", left me devastated. It was a paperback which led me to believe that it had great potential, yet it only managed to provide riveting entertainment throughout its first two thirds. <more>
However, it was the ending that spoiled a perfect novel. An ending so inconceivable, that I refused to read another book by Gillian Flynn. Since then I've contemplated why I felt that way, and have graced Fincher's adaptation with gleeful abundance. But, the novelist lied. When Flynn promised a different ending to the film adaptation which she has also scripted I was overjoyed, but it turns out that there is no difference whatsoever between the ending of the book and the film.Personal ranting aside, Fincher's attempt at another critically acclaimed novel is exceptional. It opens with the idea of a perfect marriage, and descends into a convoluted series of mind-games and elements of social commentary, based upon the media's idea of what it is to be accused of murder, and how to deal with their wrath. Nick Dunne Affleck is a thirty-something writer who lives in the heart of Carthage, Texas, alongside his beautiful wife Amy Pike , who is a writer of the "Amazing Amy" book series. All is well in the Dunne household until one day, when Nick returns home from his morning errands to find that Amy is nowhere to be found. With smashed objects lying around the living-room, Nick discerns that his wife may be missing. Upon notifying the police and his family, the media swarm upon Nick like a pack of wolves, aggravating him at every turn. Soon through Nick's albeit strange behaviour, the public perception of Nick's intentions begin to change, with many people asking the same horrifying question: Did Nick Dunne kill his wife? You think you know the story? Think again. Sticking close to the source material, Flynn has allowed for Affleck's best performance in many-a-year. Portraying a potential murderer has allowed him to expand his acting talents, with added humour and bite, putting behind his previously disappointing performances and adding this latest role to the shelf of his recent successes, emerging a fully- fledged actor.Without Affleck's participation the film wouldn't work with another actor in his role, and it's the same case in relation to Pike. Ever since she was viewed in Pierce Brosnan's "Die another Day", she has continued to excel in all of her films. Here she plays with the audience's mind, allowing us to encourage her character at one moment, and hate her, the next. It's a strange quality, but her performance is a quiet, yet absorbing one, eventually revealing how talented she really is. A career best performance, I have no doubt. Apart from the two leads, the film also benefits from a constantly intriguing cast, full of actors who show a side of themselves that didn't deem possible. There are two actors in particular: Tyler Perry and Neil Patrick-Harris.Yes, Tyler Perry has finally delivered a solid supporting performance that doesn't involve dressing up in a ridiculous stereotypical costume and requires him to actually act. And that he does. Every detail is understated, but he is surprising. As is Harris, who also astonishes within the film, as a constant reminder that he too can actually act when not required to be starring in "How I Met Your Mother", delivering a peculiar performance that's both creepy and comforting. Scoot McNairy also appears within the film as a troubled ex-boyfriend of Amy, who, when confronted about Amy's past relationship, creates a dark presence which suits his style exceptionally well. He may only appear for one scene, but it's definitely appreciated. Gillian Flynn may be adapting her own novel, but why not? She's the perfect candidate for the job. She has spent countless hours carefully crafting these characters and events for her novel, so she should know them from the inside out. That itself is evident. For each scene the audience are treated to characters that are written with affection and the idea that they are actually worth caring about. It's a skill that is worth having, and shows that Flynn may be more than just a novelist, despite her decision in regards to the film's finale. As always, Fincher is a master behind the camera. His ability to get the very best performances out of his actors is phenomenal, and he does it again here, in a thriller that seems as if it was written especially for his mind. Perhaps it was, and along with his camera angles and general skill in the art, he produces a sleek looking film that mirrors his vision of "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" 2011 . As most recent Fincher films have been scored by Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross "The Social Network" and "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo" , the pair have returned to produce a strange and absorbing soundtrack, which fits the tone of the film perfectly. In particular, their track named "A Reflection" is a splendid example of how talented they are, and how dark the film actually becomes. It couldn't be better.Fincher's latest film is an unflinching rendition of marriage in its true form. Darkly comic and boasting some of the finest and most unanticipated performances for many years, "Gone Girl" is a thriller destined for 'vintage' status.
