Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike in Gone GirlGONE GIRL

David Fincher’s Gone Girl, adapted from screenwriter Gillian Flynn’s 2012 literary phenomenon, opened on Friday. I was tempted to compose this review under the headline “SPOILER ALERT!” just to make it absolutely clear that, to offer a thorough opinion, I’d be revealing elements of this suspense thriller that the uninitiated might not want revealed. But after a couple of days spent sitting on the experience, I’m not certain that going into the movie’s specifics is all that necessary, as long as (MODERATE-SPOILERS ALERT!) I’m allowed to say that (1) the role of Rosamund Pike’s titular Amy Dunne is a co-lead opposite Ben Affleck’s Nick Dunne; (2) almost no scene featuring Amy reads as remotely believable; and (3) in the end, that doesn’t matter all that much.

Anthony Hopkins and Julianne Moore in HannibalHANNIBAL

About halfway through Hannibal, the long-awaited sequel to The Silence of the Lambs, our good Dr. Lecter (Anthony Hopkins) is in mid-vivisection of his latest prey when the victim’s cell phone rings. On the other end is FBI agent Clarice Starling (Julianne Moore), who has called to give the soon-to-be-deceased warning about Lecter’s grislier instincts. And then, with a thrilling, inevitable perfection, Hannibal picks up the phone and says with his patented, seductive purr, “Hello, Clarice.” It ranks with one of the all-time-great moments in sequel history – the first reunion of these indelible characters in 10 years – and it produced an audibly electric sensation in the audience, where everyone simultaneously released a deep-throated chortle mixed with a shudder. It might be worth sitting through the film, at least in a packed movie house, just to get to that moment. But be warned: It’ll probably be the only time during the movie when you’ll have that feeling.
