Gone Girl - Movie Review

Gone Girl (R) 149 minutes B+
Marriage Gone Wild

Starring Ben Affleck, Rosamund Pike, Neil Patrick Harris, Tyler Perry, Carrie Coon, Kim Dickens, Patrick Fugit, David Clennon, Lisa Banes, Missi Pyle, Emily Ratajkowski, Casey Wilson, Lola Kirke, Boyd Holbrook and Sela A. Ward

Adapted from Gillian Flynn best selling novel of the same name, Gone Girl is not the best film of the year. But, it might be the most intriguing. When Nick Dunne's (Affleck) beautiful wife (Pike) goes missing on their fifth wedding anniversary, it's not long before the fa├žade of their happy marriage crumbles. Nick becomes public enemy number one, while it is also revealed that his wife, Amy, is bat sh*t crazy. This film is a glimpse (albeit, an exaggerated one) into the minds of a young couple who thought they were in love, before realizing they are in hell.
