This movie has a tad long build-up, it looks cheap at times and the amount of screaming is ridiculous, but it's a surprisingly good horror film thanks to incredibly realistic approach, fine direction, effective camera work and the disturbing and insane potential real-life aspect to it.
Mystic River is quite emotional and it is of course filled with great performances, but it is an overall weak and overrated movie with standard story, ordinary direction and it is never as interesting or as smart as it should have been. It shouldn't have been an awards-worthy film.
Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland has remarkable special effects, simply astonishing art direction, solid first act, fine casting and it has its witty moments, but it is largely a so-so venture that has weak story and characters, mediocre third act and it lacks the director's touch and the wonderful charm of the sorce material leading to what is one of the worse Tim Burton movies and the one which is endlessly inferior to Disney's definitive version of the classic tale.
Crossfire is quite well acted and it is certainly a very important film with great messags, but thanks to forgettable characters, so-so direction and flawed story, it ends up being just a solid film that pales in comparison to endlessly superior masterpiece from the same year and of the same antisemitism subjdct 'Gentleman's Agreement'.
Gone Girl is weird. Disturbing and fucked-up. If ever there was a movie that completely transfigured, this is it. It starts off pretty conventional and slow, then quickly becomes anything but - it becomes disturbing, very authentic, smart, elegant, often even funny, entirely memorable and involving, intense, jaw-dropping and incredibly riveting. It has a powerhouse performance from Rosamund Pike, wonderful direction from Fincher, very satisfying ending, terrific script, one of the modt memorable characters ever and it is a thematically rich film (not since The Hunger Games has the media been better and more realistically explored). It should undoubtedly become the next Fight Club soon and it is another proof that David Fincher perfected the genre. Not since Alfred Hitchcock has there been a more magnificent thriller director and this is his finest effort since 'The Curious Case of Benjamin Button'. Truly a one of a kind experience.
