Gone Girl: The movie review and my mental state right now

Two hours and twenty nine minutes of crazy! Gone Girl is one of the better films for the American cinema. It's edgy, soft and powerful. I can't wait to read the novel. I first learned about this movie from briefly watching an interview on a cable channel. Seeing Tyler Perry in the same frame with Ben Affleck struck my interest and the way he spoke about this film also gave me curiosity.

How much of this film is actually true, I may never know. I will admit it drew parallel to fears I have about myself in my womanhood, being married and in love. Seeing this woman plot against a man who allegedly cheated and "abused" her was excruciating. I didn't know who I wanted to survive by the end of it. It was a great depiction, every actor brought their A game for this film. I was ecstatic to read Reese Witherspoon produced this film. GONE GIRL!

Seriously, this work questioned the way I view relationships on alot of levels. Seeing where I am emotionally I could be an Amazing Amy if I just scrolled a little bit more through social media to stalk boys. Watch this movie and talk about it with your friends. See who wins.
