Gone Girl

SHARE

(2014) ★★★

Sky Movies Premiere: PREMIERE Friday 31 July, 9pm

The things we do for love… Ben Affleck’s wife Rosamund Pike disappears in mysterious circumstances on the morning of their fifth wedding anniversary. The police need a body. Ben needs a lawyer. The media have a field day. Tragedy groupies gather to gossip and gawp accusingly outside the couple’s home, willing and eager participants in a ‘reality TV’ circus. Evidence is roundly ignored in favour of instant judgment calls in a clever, compelling ‘battle of the sexes’ thriller that’s essentially a trick, like Michael Douglas’ late-90s puzzle, The Game. Which was also directed by David Fincher. Unlike Fincher’s best work – Se7en, Fight Club, Zodiac – it doesn’t bear close scrutiny. Which is probably true of most marriages, of course, leave alone one as perverse as this. “Whoever took her is bound to bring her back,” says Ben’s biased sister, Carrie Coon, in one of the film’s several excellent performances.
