Gone Girl

Gone Girl ★★★★

4/5ths an absolutely riveting, taut, twisty, expertly delivered mystery thriller with brilliant performances, great scenes, stylish direction and note perfect developments.

Then it becomes this entirely different beast with character twists that come so far from the left that it leaves the entire film feeling broken. I actually like the intentions, i think the ending in story terms is actually pretty neat but the way it happens, the way it's presented, almost feels like a footnote because they ran out of time.

Had the ending been more carefully crafted without the eye rolling ridiculousness then this film could well have been perfect.
