GONE GIRL: REVIEW
HOLLYWOOD – Batman (Ben Affleck) might have killed (or not) his Bond girl wife (Rosamund Pike) in a film by David Fincher, THE airport novel director of choice.
One day gone: Ben Affleck puts on his acting face and gets to say all the lines that were cut from To the Wonder.
Two days gone: Rosamund Pike speaks in a convincing American accent.
Three days gone: David Fincher likes photographing America at night because he just likes those tungsten yellows and oranges.
Four days gone: [SPOILER ALERT] Tyler Perry is actually good!
Five days gone: f*cking men are all assholes, am I right?
Six days gone: but wait f*cking women, as well, right, can be real bitches, can’t they? Yeah. Post-feminism baitches.
Seven days gone: better than Panic Room and Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, but not a patch on Seven, Fight Club, The Game or (my fave) Zodiac.
Where has my David Fincher gone? Can someone free him from Oprah’s book club?
Gone Girl is on release.
