Gone Girl (2014)



Critic Consensus: 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.

Critic Reviews for Gone Girl

All Critics (365) | Top Critics (89)

Gone Girl is the movie Flynn fans hoped for and sets Pike up for a worthy Oscar nomination but Fincher disappoints in failing to improve upon the already-brilliant book.

May 24, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Gone Girl is a rather funhouse version of this fateful couple's relationship that teeters on depravity, desperation and bitter irony in its every step.

September 1, 2017 | Rating: A | Full Review…

'Gone Girl' may come advertised as a thriller, but that's Fincher being a trickster-he's gone and made the curtest, nastiest, most acidic black comedy about the marital accord since 'The War of the Roses.'

June 18, 2016 | Full Review…

The premise is flat-out creepy. Make sure you're game for that before you see it.

January 4, 2015 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

This is a nutty film, and for the most part I mean that in a good way.

January 4, 2015 | Rating: 3.5/4

Couching its commentary in a propulsive pulp tale, it's a genre triumph at once scary, silly, and deceptively sly.

Audience Reviews for Gone Girl

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. Read more at http://www.bluefairyblog.com/
