Thursday Movie Pick #16: Disappearance

Thursday Movie Picks by Wandering through the Shelves is here again. According to the theme of the week, three to five movies are picked and shared with the reason. Should anyone be interested in joining in, feel free to visit the main page here.

Our theme for this week is: Disappearance. I don't have lots of repertoire for this theme, therefore, I don't make theme within theme. I only share 3 films about people gone missing for whatever reasons, which really get my nerve. So, here are my picks!

01. Gone Baby Gone (2007, Ben Affleck)

In his directorial debut, Ben Affleck directed his own brother, Casey, in a thriller from Dennis Lehane. Daughter of a troubled woman (Amy Ryan) is missing, allegedly abducted; and private investigator (Casey) and his girlfriend (Michelle Monaghan) are hired to find out the whereabouts. In fact, they find a web of sheer events larger than the 'abduction' itself. The disappearing girl is only the beginning.

02. Absentia (2011, Mike Flanagan)

Mike Flanagan, now known as director of acclaimed horror Oculus and Ouija: Origin of Evil, once made a film about a tunnel, which makes people disappear. This supernatural drama is intense and non-standard, although such myth is a common thing in Asia.

03. Gone Girl (2013, David Fincher)

David Fincher does what he does in this thriller and satire to over-dramatizing media publication of tragedy. Working on Gillian Flynn's adaptation, Gone Girl immediately roots into the titular character-a posh, manipulative woman (Rosamund Pike), who disappeared one day. Her disappearance only reveals her true nature and true nature of her deadpan husband (Ben Affleck).
