Gone Girl– I watched the movie a while ago, my expectations high due to the director, David Fincher, and his previous films like Fight Club, Seven and Zodiac.

However, like I mentioned in that review, I wasn’t really sure what to make of the film. I wasn’t even sure if I liked it, and I was pretty confused about what it was trying to say and the characters in the film. I still wouldn’t say it was a bad film…it just fell kind of flat for me.

In the comments of that review I did, someone commented and said that the film might of been better for me if I had read the book by Gillian Flynn (who also adapted the screenplay), and said that the movie for them had really brought the book to life.

David Lynch has become a new obsession of mine. Once upon a time I had watched Mulholland Drive, his surrealist neo-noir mystery film, thinking it would be exactly something I would love…but I hated it. I was confused, left trying to piece together the strange array of information I had been given that seemed to lead me nowhere.

As I’ve mentioned in posts before, I love films that push me to think and question about what the film is trying to say. When I first watched Mulholland Drive, I felt that it was saying nothing and purposely confusing me in the process. I thought that perhaps it was a film people watched and bragged about, pretending they understood it’s genius when really, they didn’t understand at all.
