FEA­TURE FLICK

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Film -

Gone Girl (MA) Di­rected by: David Fincher Star­ring: Ben Af­fleck, Rosamund Pike ★★★★ ½ Re­view by: Ju­lian Wright hosts, the per­sonas we em­ploy for dif­fer­ent peo­ple, per­cep­tions and the ef­fects of the GFC on re­la­tion­ships.

He has eased off on his sig­na­ture in­ven­tive cam­era moves this time, which shows clever re­straint and helps to ground what even­tu­ally be­comes an out­ra­geously and de­li­ciously soapy story.

Those who have not read the book are in for some twisty fun with sub­stance.

This is one of those roller­coaster ex­pe­ri­ences with shock­ing turns hark­ing back to the “head in the box” mo­ment in Fincher’s Se7en.

Ben Af­fleck stars in GoneGirl.
