Director David Fincher is famous for his works that are both entertaining but of high artistic quality such as Se7en, Fight Club, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, The Social Network or more recently The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.
With Gone Girl, David Fincher is loyal to the novel from the story line to the narrative between Nick’s two perspectives and Amy’s secret diary.
The cinema version is more shortened on character lines and uses many expensive visual details to represent the ideas of writer Gillian Flynn. She is also the author of the adaptation script, so even for those who have enjoyed the book, the movie still has many elements of surprise and drama until the end.
However, instead of the original announcement that the film will end differently from the novel; The details at the end of the movie version are not significantly different from the book. However, the Twist near the end will definitely surprise and excite, haunt the crowd. David Fincher gave Gone Girl a darker, more intense color in the book, reflected in images like Amy’s lift, Nick Dunne sitting in the dark hugging cats or clues. Termites were found in Amy’s diary, etc.
Rosamund Pike has really had a role “to life” and deserved to win an Oscar next year for “Best Actress”. Despite having to overcome many other names like Charlize Theron, Natalie Portman, Emily Blunt, Rooney Mara or even the producer – star Reese Witherspoon to get a role in this remarkable adaptation project, but Rosamund it seems that no one is more suitable than me to bring the “missing” Amy to the silver screen. It can even be said that the movie version Amy has a stronger and fierce personality than what Gillian Flynn described in the novel.
