Gone-Girl-Movie-Rosamund-Pike-Amy-Dunne

Gleefully lurid thriller with a truly bizarre structure.  Gone Girl is fundamentally pretty silly, and some of the dialogue is painfully bad, but it has a certain What the hell am I watching? fascination to it, even as it drags on too long and seems eager to lose itself in every little cul-de-sac along the way.  Not good – not even close to good – but sort of a compelling specimen, if only by virtue of its strangeness.
