Where did she go? Why did she leave? Was she abducted? The most important one – Is the Gone girl really gone?
Get ready for a mind-unspooling Fincher movie that breathes in intricacy, savagery, infidelity and gorgeous hours of travesty. The Flynn tale finds his soul-mate in Fincher. The pro never fails to deliver. Flynn produces the screenplay himself, narrows stuff down for comfy watching and boy it turns out just fine.
“When I think of my wife, I always think of her head.”
The prologue begins with that, a soft focus on the Amazing Amy’s brain.
“What are you thinking?”
The joy ride begins with oscillating frames that take you into glimpses from the past and back, a perfect way of storytelling, hitting the contrast zone, just the right amount. That is downright Fincher for you.
“What have we done to each other?”
The best thing about the flick is its smooth unravelling. How perfectly the story unfurls into an amazing tale of mastermind reckoning. It is like the more you watch the more you know. Don’t know how many times it made me jump on my seat! Rosamund Pike’s performance would numb your brains. Sheer perversion! Paranoia strewn all across. It makes you go holy cannoli all the time. The heights she scales! Ah! Bravo! And accolades! Go for it! Period.
