‘Gone Girl’

enhanced-buzz-wide-384-1406873867-8Finally seen it! It was so worth the wait. Great story superbly told, emphasising the threat of violence lurking beneath the surface, occasional flashes of dark humour, clinical performance from Rosamund Pike and Ben Affleck superb as the guilty/not guilty husband. Mesmerising for all of its 149 minutes – one of the best of the year.

It’s certainly deserving of its position as one of the favourites for Oscar glory (even if it becomes an also-ran, likely to pick up a swag of nominations).
