Anyone who reads David Fincher´s filmography may be dazzled as it is possessed of a wide compilation of diverse tales (Zodiac, The Game) solvent movies (The Social Network, The Curious case of Benjamin Button) unforgettable stories (Se7en, Fight Club). Similarly, he has touched the world of musical videoclips (David Fincher did win 2 Grammys Awards working alongside The Rolling Stones, Madonna or Michael Jackson). What is more, he also has worked in television, (House of Cards for instance) and he is to make a new version of British television series Utopia. Remake that was also attempted once when Fincher made The Girl with the Dragon tatoo. Gone Girl is like David Fincher´s filmography, it is a wonderful experience!!!

Gone Girl is based upon a successful novel and the script is written by its author, writer Gilliam Flynn. Apparently, we have here a couple with no problems attached, Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike. They are pretty, enviably until one day its luck changed and they decided thereby to come back to the natal state of Ben Affleck, Missouri, because they have severe economical problems, its until then perfect marriage is shaken for some reasons, time, economical issues, professional careers and above all the mysterious disappearance of the girl, English actress Rosamund Pike, who is not so well known as Ben Affleck in Hollywood but after having seen her here I understand why she may have been signed as her performance is superb. An ordinary actress will not be able to do such a formidable role. Similarly, Flynn´s script is brilliant and the direction is classy. Gone girl deserves awards this cinematographic course, writing, David Fincher (Hollywood owes him big) actress Rosamund Pike or music (Trent Reznor as always helping Fincher) should be given nominations. As secondary actors we have two famous faces in United States, Neil Patrick Harris, comic and a celebrity chosen to present the Academy Awards´ big night on this edition and star of How I met your mother and Emily Ratajkowski, model who became famous appearing on one of the most polemic but popular videoclips of last years, Blurred Lines. Emily Ratajkowski is now an actress as Gone Girl proves.

Two underlying questions appear in Gone Girl. Firstly, a fierce and hilarious portrait of Mass Media because it is achieved with an honest reflection of our epoch, and secondly, it is a deep analysis of relationships and different necessities a man and a woman possess, marital issues which are only exacerbated because of time.
