3/5 18% Keeping Up With The Joneses (2016) Don't go expecting the premise to be in the same taut vein of The Bourne Identity. This is solely for escapism. - Independent Online (South Africa) EDIT

3/5 87% Gone Girl (2014) It is a dark, twisted, psychologically beguiling offering, where deception, doubt and despair are the cornerstones. And it is skillfully interwoven with an identifiable sense of realism. - Independent Online (South Africa) EDIT
