Gone Girl

Gone Girl ★★★★½

"I'm the cunt you married. The only time you liked yourself was when you were trying to be someone this cunt might like. I'm not a quitter, I'm that cunt."

In honor of David Fincher's birthday today, I decided to revisit one of my favourite films of his. There's so much to love about Gone Girl, but it's really Rosamund Pike that makes me love this as much as I do. Amy Dunne is manipulative, scary, viscious and psychotic, but also clever and compelling; and Pike embodies all of that with such ease. One of those performances where I truly couldn't imagine anyone else playing it. I could rave all day about Pike, and she deserves it. That Academy Award should've been hers!

Bumped up my rating with half a star, and I was really close to giving it the perfect score, but... maybe next time.
