Gone Girl (2014) Directed by David Fincher 6.5-7/10 Based on the best selling novel of the same name we have David Fincher's latest thriller about a man (Ben Affleck) who had the media circus spotlight turned on him when his wife (Rosamund Pike) disappears under suspicious circumstances. The film itself is far less slick or stylized than the usual Fincher film and though it lacks the polish and perfection we have become use dot it is still a very competently made piece. Having not red the book I was not always exactly sure what was coming which is good but the ending itself felt lacking and I had imagined several more interesting scenarios that could have played out. The best part of the film was the focus on media sensationalism but thats not to say that there weren't some great performances in the film also. Another score from Reznor and Ross was good and a little more understated than what was needed on their prior collaborations with Fincher. All in all we are left with an entertaining, well made film that will sit above the gamut of other thrillers offered this year but will not be remembered as anything too special in the directors greater catalogue.
