Film Friday: Gone Girl


I'd been looking forward to seeing Gone Girl for a while as David Fincher was directing, and the book got such rave reviews. Fincher is known for Seven, Zodiac and The Social Network and there are elements of each in Gone Girl. Ben Affleck plays a husband who arrives home one day to find his wife Amy missing. The film then explores their relationship using flashbacks and Amy's diary entries. But all is not what it seems..

I thought the film was really gripping, it really drew you in and Ben Affleck was brilliant in portraying the uncaring husband, throughout the film you can't quite work out whether you're on his side or not. I didn't enjoy the second half of the film quite as much though, I found the plot got a bit hard to believe towards the end and wasn't keen on the ending. But I enjoyed Gone Girl and would definitely recommend it. Have you read the book or seen the film? Let me know what you made of it!

  3. I really loved the book and the film's good too, although I don't think it's giving too much away to say that I felt Nick was a bit too ambiguous (even sympathetic) in the film. The thing I loved about the book was the way pretty much every character was horrible! It made the ending feel more fitting.
