Gone Girl

Gone Girl ★★★★

watched this on cable while dog sitting and eating a vegan meal i didn't pay for. i do not flip past carrie coon. it was the third ben affleck movie i'd stumbled on in as many days. that ben refused to wear a yankees hat for the airport scene is a fun piece of lore contributing to the robust mythology re how fucking annoying people from massachusetts are, and that's nice cause it's our thing, BUT david really should've exerted some directorial authority in the situation and/or simply given that numbnuts a purple nurple til he caved because the joke--that nick is exactly the type of slithery cipher of a person who'd move to new york as an adult and become a YANKEES fan-- is neutered to the point of meaninglessness when it's a mets cap. anyway, amy was right.
