If you are looking for a good movie to fill a couple of hours you could go and watch Gone Girl. Full of twists and turns and you certainly have to pay attention. Beforehand I did wonder why it was an 18 movie but it was obvious once it got going. Here is a summary from one of the websites,
An exhausted-looking man stands in front of a crowd of journalists. Behind him is a large poster of a pretty woman below the word ‘missing’. Welcome to David Fincher’s dark new vision of Gone Girl. Based on Gillian Flynn’s 2012 bestseller, this is another deceptive and irresistible thriller from the man behind SE7EN, ZODIAC and the English-language version of THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO. Ben Affleck stars as Nick Dunne, one half of a seemingly perfect marriage, his wife Amy played by the excellent Rosamund Pike. The story follows the couple as they downsize from New York to Nick’s hometown. All is well until their fifth wedding anniversary, when Amy inexplicably goes missing, and soon enough Nick is singled out as the prime suspect in her disappearance. Needless to say, nothing and no one gives up the answers easily.
It is well made and an excellent thriller that keeps you gripped throughout and easily scores a 9 out of 10 from me. If you don’t go to the cinema much you should make the effort for this one. You do sit there trying to get the next direction the plot will take, you are rarely right.
Realised I have seen loads of movies over the past year but written very little about them here will have to rectify that I think good to remember what I think about them.
