Gone Girl

Gone Girl ★★★★½

85

Octopus and Scrabble. Fincher's sterile reconstruction of sleaze and modern marriage. What is dirty is normalized by the interior of the home until a "murder" exposes it all - amoral psychopaths tossed into a moral cycle of media training and profit. Easily the greatest Fincher and Cronenweth collaboration. There is no escape from the flashing lights and the judgment placed on the lives of others, even through they deserve it, and the sickly greens and yellows inhabit the most intimate spaces. Ben Affleck is absurdly, perfectly cast, and Rosamund Pike owns the screen.
