Movie Recommendations #7: Gone Girl

The real world has been keeping me too busy to blog regularly, but I plan to return to it soon, I promise. In the meantime, I saw the movie Gone Girl, a pretty interesting movie this weekend that covers a major topic of this blog, Cluster B personality disorders.

It’s a fascinating fictional case study of a Cluster B, and what I find very interesting about the book is that it’s a story that if written about a man would probably not be a bestseller and would definitely not be a made into a major studio movie. Even with a female author, the accusation of misogynist still reared its head (spoilers in link).

I’m not going to write in depth about the movie because I don’t want to give spoilers, but at a later date I probably will.

Recommended Reading:

Gone Girl: A Novel – The novel that the movie was based on. Goes more in-depth about the childhood and thought processes of the Cluster B in question, and has more psychological depth than the movie, which is limited by being a visual medium.
