F. Murray Abraham,
On the occasion of his fifth wedding anniversary, Nick Dunne reports that his wife, Amy, has gone missing. Under pressure from the police and a growing media frenzy, Nick's portrait of a blissful union begins to crumble. Soon his lies, deceits and strange behavior have everyone asking the same dark question: Did Nick Dunne kill his wife? Written by
Twentieth Century Fox
After Amy has disappeared, Nick and the detective go to his office to follow up on his wife's first "clue". Inside his office, on the bookshelf, there are some books, two of which are Michael Chabon's "Manhood For Amateurs", non-fiction essays about being a husband, and the mistakes and surprises of being a father, and Jonathan Franzen's "Freedom", an American novel concerned with the themes of marriage.

When I think of my wife, I always think of the back of her head. I picture cracking her lovely skull, unspooling her brain, trying to get answers. The primal questions of a marriage: What are you thinking? How are you feeling? What have we done to each other? What will we do?

Instead of the traditional 20th Century Fox music that accompanies the logo in the beginning usually, a track from the soundtrack, "What Have We Done to Each Other?" (the first track) plays while the logo is shown, and continues to the Regency logo and the movie's opening credits. See more »
All the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players !!!!!!
I have always been a huge admirer of David Fincher. He is undoubtedly
one of the most consistent and masterful storytellers in modern cinema.
I also think when it comes to dark, disturbing thrillers, there is very
few who can match the directorial skills of Fincher.
Like many of his previous films, Gone Girl is a very long film, but in
a true Fincher-esque fashion, it is as engaging as possible without any
scope for the viewer to feel bored. The pacing is perfect. The scenes
have a dreamy style to it, which brings the dilemma of "whether this is
a true account of things or has this been made up by the narrator."
The theme of the film is the fact that humans at the basic level are
all actors and pretenders. Very seldom do we decide to be our real
selves. Generally all of us put on a mask to make ourselves look good
in front of the general public and also to pretend to be the person
that our nearest and dearest want us to be. Gillian Flynn's screenplay
based on her own novel is brilliant and it is also a damning indictment
of how media can shape and mould mass perception and it is also a
cynical account of the institution of marriage.
Ben Affleck is good, Tyler Perry is good, but this movie from an acting
perspective belongs to Rosamund Pike. She owns every scene that she is
in and delivers an Oscar-worthy performance.
Fincher has once again has made a fantastic film. The last 30 minutes
might not be completely logical, but it is still symbolic. If you are
about to get married,stay away from Gone Girl.
