Dark, intelligent, and stylish to a fault, Gone Girl plays to director David Fincher's sick strengths while bringing the best out of stars Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike.

This is a nutty film, and for the most part I mean that in a good way.
Gone Girl promises to be an unnerving portrait of marriage as ruin, but then it opts for madness and implausibility.
This is the most elegant, exquisitely made trash.
Fincher is as Fincher does. And what Fincher does better than almost anyone is create moody, meticulously crafted thrillers that straddle the divide between genre and art.
Gone Girl is a sick movie, but it's a lumbering, anti-imaginative kind of sick.
In the film's final stages [Fincher] seems to be relying entirely on craft - but, boy, is it effective craft.
Everything seemed laughable and over-the-top, and not in a good way. In a "THEY RUINED THE STORY" way.
Ostensibly a run-of-the-mill domestic thriller, it features a richly-drawn cast of characters, and a straightforward storyline... under which, however, runs a labyrinthine plot full of murky twists in which nothing is as it seems.
Pike seems to relish each delicious twist and turn the character takes. She is extremely entertaining to watch.
A highly entertaining piece of pulp fiction.
A deliriously diabolical psychological thriller, it won't be gone from our collective mind anytime soon.
Gone Girl achieves something rather unusual - it keeps us engaged and eager to know what will happen next, even as we're not sure that we like the people who are most affected by the story's events.
Memorable bit of hair pulling as a happy couple go horribly wrong. Strong work on all counts: Pike and Affleck effectively proving that they are not second tier actors anymore.
Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike deserve many awards for their exceptional performances in this brilliant thriller that keeps us always guessing at the very edge of our seats with its deliciously elaborate plot and never ceases to surprise us with every incredible twist it throws on our laps.
While it didn't get a lot of nominations this year, I found that "Gone Girl" just had to be the first film that I watched for this series. I actually bought the book at Costco and speed read through it in a couple of days just to see the movie in time for Oscar season. The adaptation (from the Gillian Flynn book of the same name) was movingly perfect in its choices, poignancy, and mood. It captured the fear of being alone, the intimacy of marriage, and the driving force of insanity.
