2014 Best Adapted Screenplay Winner

Gone Girl

This was a tough choice, not because the nominees are all so good but because I think there are definite flaws in all of them.  In the case of this one it’s that it’s dependent on a twist that takes a lot of suspension of disbelief and its dialogue is a little too snappy for its own good at times.  Still, I couldn’t deny that this was an excellent example of what a Hollywood thriller could be if done with a little more ambition than usual.  That it was able to spark as many arguments as it did while also working as an entertaining yarn does make it worth some degree of fame.
