| What a crime thriller should be
I like it when a movie can keep me guessing until the end, and Gone Girl just did that. Most of the time I didn't know where this film was going, and each new twist and turn was a surprise. You can't help but get pulled into the story. The actors all gave excellent performances, as well. I don't think I'll ever be able to look at some of them the same way again. This movie is what a crime thriller should be.

Did You Know?


Tom Cruise and Reese Witherspoon were initially desired for the lead roles.


Nick Dunne: When I think of my wife, I always think of the back of her head. I picture cracking her lovely skull, unspooling her brain, trying to get answers. The primal questions of a marriage: What are you thinking? How are you feeling? What have we done to ...


One piece of crucial evidence that could implicate Amy and be seen as very suspicious is the getaway car that she used. She bought the car from a Craigslist seller, and picked it up in person, so the seller definitely saw her face. She is found by Desi Collings at the casino and he takes her to his home, In his car, leaving hers behind at the casino. The car would eventually be towed by the tow truck company and they'd try to contact the original owner. The car originally belonged to the seller and he'd definitely remember that he sold his car to Amy, as her disappearance became a nationwide media frenzy and he'd recognize her by memory. This would lead to the authorities checking out the surveillance footage of the casino where the car was left (which they'd definitely have so as to catch cheaters) and they'd see Amy being friendly and civil with her supposed kidnapper. While the novel does have a scene showing Desi helping Amy to dispose of the car in a lake, such a scene is never shown in the film, so the car just disappears from the film without explanation.

Crazy Credits

Instead of the traditional 20th Century Fox music that accompanies the logo in the beginning usually, a track from the soundtrack, "What Have We Done to Each Other?" (the first track) plays while the logo is shown, and continues to the Regency logo and the movie's opening credits.
