What is great is that Affleck in the last few years is really delivering some solid performances, but in Gone Girl, he delivers his finest performance yet. Gone Girl is a vivid, thrilling drama that is both poignant and riveting from start to finish. The film's plot steadily unfolds in a way that you are slowly sucked into the web of tension that Fincher brilliantly unfolds. I love his work, and I would say that this is his finest film since Zodiac. Here he directs a film that is unlike any other film in his filmography. This picture grabs your attention, and doesn't let go until the final visceral frame. With a steady vibe of tension that really keeps you engaged into the film. Brilliant acted and directed, Gone Girl is one is one of the year's finest pictures, and with that being said, I would go to say that Gone is among my favorites this year, and that's saying a lot considering there has been so many great films, but Gone Girl is a film that really struck a nerve to the point where you're speechless at what you're seeing in front of you. Fincher directs this film as if he is directing a riot, what I mean by that is, is that the film feels like controlled chaos and in that regard, the film is a prime example of an unflinching masterwork that just stays with you long after the credits roll. David Fincher has made great films during his career, but Gone Girl is most likely going to be seen as one of his finest. Brilliantly acted, directed and constructed in terms of sheer mystery and thrills, this is one of the most engaging thrillers of the year, if not the genre.
