Not as good as the book, in part because of Ben Affleck, this is still one of the best films I saw in 2014.
Adapted from the novel by its author, Gillian Flynn, this film about a missing wife (brilliantly portrayed by Rosamund Pike) has the suspense of the best crime thriller and the emotional gravitas of a personal drama.
Neil Patrick Harris is superb as the eerie ex, which makes it even more of a shame that Affleck couldn’t bring the depth his character needed.
Despite this it’s truly fantastic and chilling, and will leave you on edge for weeks.
