You dont want to be a Nick or an Amy, but its exactly what you are. No, you arent a murderer in the making. Youre just a person who lies when its convenient and tries to be what society tells you youre supposed to be. To put it in laymans terms, youre human. Maybe you saw Gone Girl after reading Gillian Flynns best selling novel. Maybe you saw it in order to catch a glimpse of Ben Afflecks junk. Maybe you just wanted to see what the Oscar hype was all about. No matter what your reasoning was, the 150 minutes shouldve gone by in a flash, because the characters and their interactions are unlike anything thats ever been on screen. At first glance, they appear unbelievable and unlovable. However, after getting to know them and seeing the darkest corners of their minds, youll realise that you share a few too many of their traits. Instead of worrying about whats wrong with you for relating to such despicable characters, you should focus on the things theyve taught you. Sometimes, its easier to learn from a twisted couple's mistakes than it is to learn from a perfectly happy, yet boringly bland couple in a gooey romantic film.
