“Friends see most of each other’s flaws. Spouses see every awful last bit.”
Gone Girl was great as a murder-mystery-thriller. It was even more brilliant as a commentary on the absurdity of marriage. Watch now.
Ben Affleck was so good in making us doubt him, seeth with anger, and yet sympathize with his amoral character. Probably his best work in years.
The real star though was Rosamund Pike, cooing her lines like the most twisted angel. She was just brilliant. An Oscar nod please!!
