Is Gone Girl creator Gillian Flynn the epitome of feminism? The author could be just as well a mysogynist as a feminist. Whether hero worshiper or chauvinist lesbian, that you can’t put your finger on it is what the Northwestern University Master and former Newsweek reporter’s genius is, and genius needs not explain itself; It is recognized by its versatility. Would Ben Affleck have been more convincing in his good guy role by playing suspiciously? How well did he play the innocent? How many clues of being the opposite did he offer? Did he play being the bad guy in such an inconspicuous way that he had the audience fooled believing he was actually bad? Watch the movie and decide for yourself. Was Rosamund Pike’s portrayal of the Antiheroine heroic?
