Ashdoc's movie review---Gone girl

Post by ashdoc on Tue Nov 04, 2014 4:05 am

Ben Affleck returns home to find out that his wife is gone one day....

He calls in the cops , who begin the investigation....

And the investigation leads to one way---Ben Affleck becomes the prime suspect in her disappearance....

His wife is a celebrity , and the TV channels extensively explore the story....

The common people and especially the women are baying for his blood....

Women presenters run programmes on TV trying to prove that Ben is a murderer , and even his relationship with his sister is tried to be labelled as incestous....

Ben can't move anywhere without being hounded by the cameras and press....

He becomes the number one hated man in America....

So he hires a top notch celebrity lawyer to defend himself....

But the problem for those trying vilify Ben , and indeed those trying to get him convicted is---where is the body ?? And police can't make a clear cut case until his wife's body is found....

So where is the body ??
And what is the meaning of 'Gone girl' ?? Does it mean that his wife is gone ?? 
Or does it mean that she is/was a 'Gone case' ??

Either way , the cup of Ben's woes brimmeth over....
But just how much does it brimmeth over ??

Watch the movie for that....
The movie has some really stupefying answers for your questions....

Telling any more of the story would be spoiling the fun for you , and because the entertainment of those who read my reviews is uppermost in my mind ( see how much I care about you !! he he ) , I will desist from telling any more details of the movie....

Acting by Ben Affleck is good for once---at last he has become a good actor....
See how he acts in front of a camera faking how much he supposedly loved his wife....
And see how much pain and anguish he really feels at all that is happening around him....

The movie unfolds in flashbacks as a diary written by his wife ( acted out by Rosamund Pike ) is read out to us and she comes to life through the diary....
And the diary tells a story of a lovely marriage hitting the rocks....

And as she comes in the flashbacks , Rosamund puts up a great performance....
I particularly liked the soft way in which she talked , the soft way in which she talked not at all giving any hint of what was to come....
And what was to come , blew my mind away when it came....

I also liked the acting by the actress who played Ben's sister---and the sister is loyal and so supportive all the way, so loving , so caring....Vow !! I wished I had such a sister....Why doesn't God make such women any more....??

The plot twisted and turned several times giving some high blood pressure to weak hearts....
Some parts shown in the film were not realistic , but that is to be expected in this kind of movie---for what is a good movie without these kind of bloopers ??

But it did give some entertainment to savor....
And kept me royally interested throughout...

Verdict---Don't miss it....
