Spoilers below: You clearly see what is happening in very beginning with Nick Ben Affleck and you pretty much know he did not kill his wife 30 minutes in. I would have stood up and cheered. Sure it was from a pay phone, but isn't it going to raise any flags? Amy inflicts injuries on herself and uses Desi's surveillance cameras to her advantage, making it appear that Desi kidnapped and raped her. He then kept her a prisoner, starved and raped her. Amy is revealed to be alive and well, having changed her appearance and gone into hiding in a distant campground in the.
First of all I know that many surveillance cameras overwrite their data after some time, so it is very likely that only the last few days where she never left or entered the house would be available to the police. The gadgets are bought online. I'm usually the first to notice, and even though there were some things that bothered me I got over them quite quickly since the movie had a tight grip on me. Of course, Nick is devastated and only adds to his distress by a yearning for his wife through dreams and memories. He wipes some sugar off her lips and kisses her.
Coinciding with the North America release, Gone Girl released at 5,270 screens in 39 international markets like the United Kingdom and Germany, on its opening weekend. If this had been written and played as a straight-out dark comedy - and if it had been at least half an hour shorter - perhaps it would have passed as a run of the mill movie. That would then imply he was the one that drained so much blood from her back at her home, he cleaned it up and he put her diary in the wood stove?! A nosy neighbor notices the door ajar and calls the husband somehow the neighbor knows exactly where he is. Just seen the film Gone Girl. Her disappearance receives heavy press coverage because Amy was the inspiration for her parents' popular Amazing Amy children's books.
Scratch discloses to Amy he needs to kiss her now. With his wife's disappearance having become the focus of an intense media circus, a man sees the spotlight turned on him when it's suspected that he may not be innocent. Or the poor girl next door who was always nice to the strange kid. I did not mean to do that. There's blood all over the kitchen, but none where she would have been dragged out of the house? What is going to be made of Amy's phone call to Desi? Fincher had already expressed interest in the project, and after he finished reading Flynn's first draft, a meeting was scheduled between the director and author within days.
Yet wouldn't the cameras show her entering the bathroom without wounds and emerging with wounds? Nick hires Tanner Bolt, a lawyer who specializes in defending men accused of killing or raping their wives. The challenge was, simply, what is the musical equivalent of the same sort of façade of comfort and a feeling of insincerity that that music represented? Read the novel to find out before the movie comes out. Being the psycho she is, are we to believe that she is going to let them get away with it? The police conduct a analysis and uncover the remnants of cleaned blood stains, leading to the conclusion that Amy was murdered. She seduces Desi and kills him during sex by slitting his throat. Desi is supposed to have broken into the house, beat her bloody and kidnapped her.
Rather than undermine that noxiousness, Fincher enshrouds it in funereal brushstrokes that cast his Gone Girl as a fashionable tumbling into an abyss of willful denial. When Boney questions Amy about the holes in her story, Amy accuses her of incompetence. How does she get into and out of the shed without her sister-in-law who doesn't like her noticing? Amy Rosamund Pike goes off into a series of illogical and irrational behaviors, including consorting with some random trash at a trailer park, despite having faked her own death and being the subject of a massive manhunt. I could go on and on but just read the other truthful reviews they will point out most of the other glaring mistakes and downright intelligence insulting nonsense. Under pressure from the police and a growing media frenzy, Nick's portrait of a blissful union begins to crumble. We liked the same things about the book, and we wanted the same thing out of the movie. Why does Nick elect to live in the same county as this woman, let alone in the same house? For us, the film represents a significant achievement in that it contains more and larger plot holes than any other movie we have ever seen - and we've seen many! Even further adding to his frustration, his wife disappearance became the center of the media which throws his into suspicion for her disappearance.
He agrees to hide her in his lake house, which is equipped with surveillance cameras. He goes into the family room and sees a table flipped over and the glass top is broken on the floor. That's why she went near the window, which was within the perimeter of one of the cameras, to do her screaming attack. . Nick convinces his twin sister, Margo, of his innocence. He has not a scratch on him. By far one of the best acting performances to have come from Ben Affleck, 'Gone Girl' boasts some strong yet disturbing portrayals from Rosamund Pike, Neil Patrick Harris, Tyler Perry and Affleck.
That is basically the story and that's why this film is so intriguing in my opinion. The other characters are largely unlikeable, unbelievable or just stilted caricatures. Storyline: On the occasion of his fifth wedding anniversary, Nick Dunne reports that his wife, Amy, has gone missing. What Fincher in my opinion wanted to demonstrate is the exemplary control Amy had over the public, were no questions were asked, nobody ever doubted her. He returns home and calls for Amy. His performance rekindles Amy's feelings for him, even as Boney arrests him for Amy's murder.
The film is the biggest debut of Fincher's career, breaking 's opening. I am baffled by the good reviews. They are just bland and, well, unbelievable. Amy plans the framing in great detail: she befriends a pregnant neighbor to steal her urine for the pregnancy test, drains her own blood to leave traces of evidence of murder and fabricates a diary describing her fear of Nick. Then he takes her diary to her husbands fathers house to burn!!!!! Nick doubts the child is his and says he will take a paternity test. I felt sick in between because of the horrible, frightening character of Amy.
