Film: Gone Girl (and first post in a long while)

David Fincher - I have to just stop there and say he’s someone for whom I have no words to describe my admiration. What a contemporary artist and leader.

Okay - so thanks to Shannon I bought the book and then randomly was sitting with my mom (my professional hero) who was going through major reconstructive dental surgery - and I started reading it to her. I don’t know - that’s what parent’s did to for us right? Read. So I did.

I got sucked into it as did my mom. I finished it, put the book down, and I moved on.

This past week, I’ve seen 47 interviews with the main star who I have admittedly been critical of, mostly as actor - but favorable of as a director (see Gone Baby Gone - - go ahead, bookmark it now).

But late night 10/7/14 - I caught Gillian Flynn (author), David Fincher (fav. film director of my time) Affleck and Rosamund Pike on @charlierose and I. Was. Reminded.

Then I saw the film tonight and I was blown away - especially by Affleck’s generosity when speaking about the film to Charlie Rose and honoring his creative choices and his colleagues at the table. But it wasn’t that - it was Fincher + Flynn + Affleck + Pike and what drew them to the project, what gave them purpose.

I loved the book. I was compelled by the interview I mention above (the one, not the 47), I was energized by these four people coming together and speaking with such relevance to what I seek in purposeful work - my purpose, surrounded by the best people, at risk relative to conventional thinking.

But spectacular nonetheless. So, without obligation, I recommend it.
