Reel Snippet – Gone Girl

It’s difficult to talk about the story of Gone Girl because I want to avoid as many spoilers as possible. What you should know from the get go is that I cannot recommend this film enough. This movie will keep you on the edge of your seat for the entire running time, even after a twist in the middle that would normally close out a story. Personally, I was kind of shaky when I left the theater because it was just so intense. The cast in this movie is pretty is pretty amazing too. Affleck’s natural awkwardness works really well in making him seem suspicious, Neil Patrick Harris plays against type really well, and even Tyler Perry is tolerable. The film was directed by David Fincher, the same man behind Fight Club and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. It seems like this guy can tackle any genre and make it seem natural, kind of like The Beatles (or Takeshi Kitano, if you really want to get obscure). When the credits were rolling, someone in the audience mentioned that this was just as good as the book. I believe it, though that may partially be because the book’s author also wrote the screenplay. It’s rather graphic and may be taxing for the faint of heart, but this absolutely needs to be seen.
