I’d love to tell you why Gone Girl is a great movie.
But I can’t.
This is possibly one of the few movies I have ever seen that the plot is really important to an understanding of the film…and giving a full review would be like talking about who Keyser Soze really is in The Usual Suspects. or why Bruce Willis doesn’t really talk to his wife in the Sixth Sense. All I will say is that this plot has more layers than an Inception heist.
I will have a full review in a month.
But short version: This is a great character study and Ben Affleck and Rosamond Pike have given the first real Oscar worthy performances of the year. Truly Spectacular acting…if you are still among the group thinking Affleck isn’t a strong enough actor to play the Dark Knight, you are wrong….and this movie will show you why.
We usually only give a rating out of five glasses here on Elementary Politics…but I’m going to give it a six because I was just blown away by this film. Go see it. I’ll have a full analysis after you’ve had a chance to see it…
