Gone Girl

Gone Girl ★★★★★

the full experience of this movie is showing it to someone who has no idea what it is and feeling it prime them up with all the constructed detail for over an hour just to rattle them for the next one. some of if not the best editing of the 2010s and one of the great modern films on marriage + its destructive relationship with performance and optics. really hoping fincher got the oscars out of his system and goes back to reworking pulpy trash like this (that's just completely overdosed on reality tv and true crime and gender politics) and turning it into a clockwork piece of perverse genre art.
