All the pieces to making GONE GIRL are perfect. Gillian Flynn’s screen adaption of her book of the same title is a great modern day thriller. David Fincher’s direction is excellent at maintaining the intrigue and suspense in a visual temporal puzzle of lies and deceptions. Ben Affleck, Rosamund Pike, Tyler Perry (who knew!), and Neil Patrick Harris are perfect choices for their roles. And Pike is at her worst (see the film and you’ll understand what I mean because her performance is amazing) playing Amy Dunne. This is a film that will keep you guessing from start to finish in a good way.
