Gone Girl

Gone Girl ★★★★★

Gone Girl is a film that depends less on the actual mystery of the story and more on the delivery of that mystery. It's fitting then that David Fincher was the one to adapt the book for the screen. The tone and pace of this film are so perfect, and the acting so on-point, that each twist and revelation holds mesmerizing, powerful weight. Like the realization of the central surprise in Fight Club, or the final plot twist of Se7en, Gone Girl features the kind of searingly intense, 'holy shit I'm forgetting to breathe' moments that we all hope for every time we walk into a theater. Really incredible stuff.
