MOVIE REVIEW: GONE GIRL


As much as the show titled like someone lost their kid, it is not the case. Let me assure you that Gone Girl can be in the same category as MINDFUCKING because what you see is not always what you get. 

Imdb comes out with the movie summary: With his wife's, Amy Dunne (Rosamund Pike) disappearance having become the focus of an intense media circus, a man, Nick Dunne (Ben Affleck) sees the spotlight turned on him when it's suspected that he may not be innocent. Together with his twin, Margo Dunne (Carrie Coon) he tries to uncover the true secret that his wife been hiding all these time. 


THE GOOD

If there is someone to admire in this movie, Rosamund Pike will be the one to watch. She really carries the roll of Amy Dunne crazily good and with that you will embark on a journey on crazy together with her. It scares the fuck out of you knowing how crazy someone can be. The story was beautifully written and the acting was so convincing that you will wonder what some crazy fuckers out there are capable of. Scene after scene makes you want to know more. 

THE BAD 

As good as it sounds, there is always a bad side too. One being that as much as the story was tightly written, it also makes you wonder is the public in the movie THAT stupid? Seems like Nick Dunne could have gather evidence and send his dear wife to jail but no he decided to stay, not sure if he is crazy or just stupid. Other than that, some of the clues that was given to him from his wife was also kinda weird and hard to guess because there was no background story especially their family background.


CONCLUSION

All in all, it is one hell of a mindfucking movie as we slowly see how crazy someone can be and to call that LOVE.... Well, I guess LOVE IS CRAZY eh and this show tell us everything about it. If you like thriller, you will enjoy this show as I expect to go into a movie where there was a child kidnapped or something but I was in for a treat. 

TL;DR: love is crazy, women are crazier.
