Last weekend was a Gillian Flynn -weekend for me. I saw Gone Girl and I read Dark Places. Now, a word or two about Gone Girl.
I read the book this year, in April (review here), so there was exceptionally little time between the book and the movie. The events of Gone Girl were still vividly in my mind, so I knew what to expect.
Gone Girl was a good movie. The manuscript was very loyal to the book. That’s a good thing because the story is so twisted that it doesn’t need any changes. The movie achieved well the atmosphere of the book and character were as they should be. Fincher succeeds to create just the right ambience and surroundings.
Ben Affleck was good (incredibly, I say this). His stiff and inexpressive way of acting suited this role perfectly. The biggest credit goes to Rosamund Pike, she was sweet, cute, perfect, cold, calculating, mad, weird and beautiful.
Gone Girl was good entertainment. The plot is surprising but as I knew what was going to happen, it didn’t surprise me. Despite the fact that I knew what was coming I enjoyed watching Gone Girl. Well above of many mediocre mystery movies I’ve seen.
