Kunst und Entertainment

Gone Girl ist beides: Kunst und Entertainment, ein Thriller, aber auch eine echte Aufgabe. Ein Publikumsfilm! Die Perspektiven, der Schwerpunkt wechseln so häufig in Gone Girl, dass es den Eindruck macht, hier würden mehrere Kurzfilme miteinander verbunden werden. Im Grunde aber ist es einfach nur die Geschichte eines Mannes, der einen Mord verübt hat - oder nicht. Gone Girl beginnt am fünften Hochzeitstag von Nick (Ben Affleck) und Amy (Rosamund Pike). Gleichzeitig ist es der Tag von Amys rätselhaftem Verschwinden. Zunächst erleben wir das Geschehen aus Nicks Perspektive. Er ist ein frustrierter ehemaliger Journalist, der vor der Wirtschaftskrise nach Missouri floh. Gemeinsam mit seiner Schwester Margo (Carrie Coon) betreibt er dort eine Bar. In der Küche des Ladens finden sich Blutspure...

Gone Girl.... A masterpiece.

This movie was one of the best movies I have seen in a couple of years. Even though I am not a huge Ben Affleck fan, Rosamund Pike was outstanding and the direction of David Fincher was phenomenal....Even though most people would think the build-up was long and drawn out... I think Fincher did an excellent job in trying to paint doubt in Nick Dunne's innocence.. It showed the chinks in the armor of the marriage.. Built a guilty aura around Nick to where you despised him... You felt sorry for the "missing wife"... Then the secret comes out... You feel bad for all the pressure Nick is facing (with a still hatred of him for cheating) and start to despise her... But it then gets better... Her plans are derailed when the crooked neighbors steal her stash.... And she has to reach for ...

As the saying goes, "The bitch set me up."

Based off the bestselling novel, 'Gone Girl' is an absolutely unnerving but often darkly comical mystery thriller that also serves as a blistering indictment against the media frenzy that happens during every one of these high profile 'missing persons' case.
Ben Affleck gives one of his career's best performances as Nick Dunne, the self-described small-town guy from Missouri who seemingly scores the perfect wife in Amy Elliot (Rosamund Pike) who suddenly disappears on their fifth wedding anniversary. The community and nation rallies together in search of Amy but also to relentlessly pass judgement on Nick's innocence or lack thereof. In a big budget thriller like this you better believe there's some plot twists;some that have been spoiled in 'Gone Girl's marketing but some still pack a ...

"Gone Girl" by Yojimbo

A husband arrives home one day to find his wife gone and signs of foul play, but when the evidence starts to point towards him he is ostracised by his community. David Fincher's latest is a dark and intelligent whodunnit with similarities to its star's own excellent directorial debut Gone Baby Gone as well as its contemporary Nightcrawler. The film's theme is essentially the nature of "trial by media" and its ramifications for those involved in the case and the way that sensationalist news programmes can be so prejudicial in reporting the so-called "facts". It also examines the way in which the image we present to the outside world can be very different to not only our own real lives, but also to how we perceive ourselves. It's not as high minded and navel-gazing as th...

Fatal attraction without the bunny

A very good movie but perhaps a little over long. it makes fatal attraction seem like a comedy.
Ben afleck plays a husband who returns home to find his wife gone and what looks like a possible struggle.
he calls the cops and so begins the thriller, did he murder his wife or is it something else.
Theres twists and turns and constant movement the editing is really good and it never once gets slow.
while the premise of the story of a did he didnt he kill his wife what happened has been done countless times. its never been done better, its like a cross between the war of the roses without the comedy and fatal attraction without the bunny. its one of those films that will stay with you after its over.
The only downflaw was the ending seemed a llittle to long and dragged a bit to come t...

Gone Girl review

"What are you thinking? What are you feeling? What have we done to each other? What will we do?"

David Fincher never disappoints as always. The plot focuses on Nick Dunne and his popular wife Amy. It's a typical slow-burner at first but once the story unfolds abut the 2 main characters it gets very interesting. His style of direction here reminded me of classic films such as Psycho (in terms of mood and background music), Double Indemnity/American Beauty (the almost similar plot/storyline), Fatal Attraction (Amy of course), Silence of the Lambs (the female cop with the accent) and Fight Clubs wicked dark humor. Artists playing the characters were spotless especially Rosamund Pike, who was just electrifying! If only she gets an Oscar recognition (the very least) for her potryal of...

David Fincher is a true master class of directing.

Amy Dunne: "This man might honestly,truly kill me".

The story is about Nick Dunne, as he finds out his wife has gone missing. As increasing police and media pressure mount, the facade of a loving and blissful union crumbles and amidst the lies and behavior of Nick, the question remains - did he kill her?

I have to say that David Fincher is a true master class of directing, because Gone girl is one of the best films of this year. Ben Affleck was perfect for this role, because Ben Affleck through out his career had a lot of hate from the media and the critics that mostly slammed him in every role that he was in. And that's why he was outstanding in this movie. Rosamund Pike acting in this film was pure brilliant and spectacular. She was so good in this role she might get a...

From Victim to Villain and Back Again

One thing I can count on from David Fincher - he's consistent. Consistently great - as a director. From Fight Club to Social Network, no one can quite mix social commentary with a streak of dark humor quite like Fincher. And somehow, he can keep you on the edge of your seat - even if you know the outcome. With Gone Girl, he has done it again, and, if you haven't read the book by Gillian Flynn, do yourself a favor and don't spoil this one - because it's worth it to go into it with as little knowledge as possible. I will try to be as spoiler free as possible in this review.

We start off with Nick Dunne (Ben Affleck) heading out for the day to hang out at The Bar (yes - wickedly original name) that he owns with his sister, Margo (Carrie Coon). It seems like today, the fifth anniversary to...

What a Movie!

I've seen a multitude of mystery-crime films, but none have had me more involved and completely surprised than 'Gone Girl'. Each new plot reveal is more jaw-dropping than the last. It's all done purposefully to convey the themes of this clever story. Smart commentary and satire are perfectly woven into an already perfect genre piece. Marital problems are shown realistically, only to be taken into wildly entertaining extremes. I also love the accurate representation, and sharp skewering, of the usual media circus that becomes of similar real-life occurrences. The film starts dark and slowly becomes pitch black by the end. The depths that some characters reach are downright evil, in the most enjoyable sense. It's all in good fun. This is much, much more than a satisfying mystery. ...

Gone Girl is the Movie to See

I’m a sucker for atmospheric mind bending crime-dramas, and we’ve had quite a few good ones in the last few years, and David Fincher’s Gone Girl, the newest entry into said genre, may not be quite as good as Prisoners or Side Effects (honestly I can’t decide), but it’s a whole lot of sadistic satiric cynical fun, and stands on it’s own two feet as a straight up great crime thriller.

I have not read the reportedly fantastic novel that this film was based upon, but I feel sorry for anyone who has because their missing out. Gone Girl has so many fantastic twists turns and mind blowing reveals that it just wouldn’t be the same if you already knew what was going to happen. It’s doesn’t only have one genuinely surprising twist, It has several (the biggest of which is revealed not half wa...
