One of the best things I’ve seen this year! Hands down!
I remember leaving the room and tweeting right away:
“My head is still spinning! I mean, what a ride!! By far one the best things I've seen all year! My heart is still pacing”
It’s funny… 24 hours later I still feel the same way almost as the adrenaline is still being pumped into my body.
David Fincher, like he so often does, play with your head… over and over again, until you don’t know who you are any more.
The key to its success (or part of it) is the script based on Gillian Flynn novels, who actually ended up helping Fincher with the adaptation.
Add fantastic performances by Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike (as well as the supporting cast with Tyler Perry, Neil Patrick Harris, Carry Coon, Kim Dickens) and you have a masterpiece in your hands.
It's hard to give it a full-on review without entailing crucial moments. I for one, prefer to just state whether its worth it or not... and trust me… it will leave you on the edge of your seat. It will flip you upside down more than once… it will build anxiety, anger, relieved with occasional laughter and some sense of rightness. But ultimately, it will linger long after the credits roll. You will talk about it afterwards. Discuss it, digest it and then talk some more.
It is that good!
