Thework of David Fincher fascinates as much as ever on every project it acquires. For some time he was able to create a certain coherence in her choice and with the same team of technicians : photography Jeff Cronenweth, editing, Kirk Baxter and music by Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross.
Gone Girl is no exception to the rule, adapted from the novel of The Appearances of Gillian Flynn (of which it ensures its own scenario for the screen), a real thriller of morality on the couple. David Fincher confronts and dissects the past, the present and the future of that couple to eventually develop a critique on the media. A means of communication that seems to fascinate since his Social Network.
Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike make this couple on the screen. A sort of american ideal, who just smiled. They are beautiful and rich; they are both writers, and live comfortably their love. Everything is perfect…
But on the day of their fifth wedding anniversary while rocking.
Nick Dunne (Affleck perfect) reports the disappearance of his wife and finds himself under pressure from the police and the media, while the mystery around this event thickens.
All turns, then, to a critique of the u.s. company locked in the appearances, entangled in the craving to control and to maintain the perfection. Theamerican way of life.
This thriller top of the range held in halène thanks to a subtle screenplay that mixes the past and the present of the couple. The present with the character that Affleck is the main plot and the investigation; while the past, more secondary, clings to the past of the couple through the diary of Amy (Pike finally a role to its measurement). The viewer is also taken to advantage and, even ahead of the facts. The director takes a perverse pleasure in multiplying the twists and turns and to try everything so we lose. It is through this confrontation of the two timelines that the film gains strength.
”Gone Girl is a thriller chilling and panting”
The general atmosphere of the film is once again marked by the score taking and immersive of the duo Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross. They arrive with the help of the editing and the photography has to create additional tension, palpable and very black.
And Gone Girl is a thriller chilling and panting. a real critique of this american society totally controlled by the tv channels. Fincher scored with a turn of the master, and proves that he is one of the directors of the most talented of this decade. In any case, he has managed to keep his paw visual and neglected the special effects for a more realistic approach and without artifice.
