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. I killed for you; who else can say that?  You think you’d be happy with a nice Midwestern girl? No way, baby! I’m it.”

Part 6 of my David Fincher Ranking

I’m not gonna lie those first 20 mins didn’t feel like a Fincher movie but then it easily becomes all the brilliant trademarks of a Fincher movie. The score is easily my favorite from any Fincher movie which perfectly disturbed me, the pacing was phenomenal and I could easily watch more, the characters are fully fleshed out and believable, the cinematography is crisp and precise, the framing and camerawork is so smooth, the performances were absolutely  amazing and disturbing, and the sound design is fantastic as always. It’s so close to a 5/5 but I’ll have to see if all those twists and turns can still hold my attention on a second viewing. Also NPH LITERALLY plays Barney Stinson and it’s amazing.

Favorite Scene: Amy and Desi scene (scared the shit out of me)

Overall Rating: A
