Consensus: Dark, intelligent, and stylish to a fault, Gone Girl plays to director David Fincher's sick strengths while bringing the best out of stars Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike.

This is a nutty film, and for the most part I mean that in a good way.

Fincher is as Fincher does. And what Fincher does better than almost anyone is create moody, meticulously crafted thrillers that straddle the divide between genre and art.

I think it wants to be a scathing satire, but there's enough navel-gazing to take the edge off when the satire really needs to bite its hardest.

Gone Girl promises to be an unnerving portrait of marriage as ruin, but then it opts for madness and implausibility.

Gone Girl is a sick movie, but it's a lumbering, anti-imaginative kind of sick.

Gone Girl fails as a crime thriller in part because it is far too long - none of Fincher's major feature films have clocked in at less than two hours, and several run closer to three - but mostly because the distribution of its sympathies are so uneven.

This is the most elegant, exquisitely made trash.

In the film's final stages [Fincher] seems to be relying entirely on craft - but, boy, is it effective craft.

Gone Girl is a rather funhouse version of this fateful couple's relationship that teeters on depravity, desperation and bitter irony in its every step.

Memorable bit of hair pulling as a happy couple go horribly wrong. Strong work on all counts: Pike and Affleck effectively proving that they are not second tier… More
