Gone Girl

Gone Girl ★★★★½

This was my first time seeing an 18 rated film at the cinema, and christ, I don't think I could've picked anything better.

This is a brilliant film, and there's so many things I could say about it but I feel as though they'd all be verging on spoiler territory and that is not something I want to do. The only media that I'd seen before going in was the TV spot, and I think that is the best way to view it because it seemed to make it all the more visceral.

What I will say is that it'd make an amazing triple bill with Blue Velvet and American Beauty, for all three are equally depressing and blackly comic films of fucked Americana suburbs.
