*Spoilers ahead* As I wrote in my review of the movie last fall: for all the underlying themes, twisty narrative developments and propulsive pace, David Fincher‘s “Gone Girl” is “utterly ridiculous.” It’s high grade trash, but trash nonetheless, requiring a suspension of disbelief that must increase with each passing minute. It seems the latest Honest Trailer from Screen Junkies concurs on those points.
It doesn’t take much to start picking away at “Gone Girl,” mostly because the movie requires you to roll with the idea that a woman would spend five years elaborately framing her husband for her own murder, including carefully hiding away gallons of her own blood and stealing her neighbor’s urine. But it speaks to Fincher’s skills that he makes even those wacky notions somewhat plausible. Agree? Disagree? You know where to go. Watch below.
