David Fincher: A Film Title

I don’t understand the point of being together if you are not the happiest.

And yet, and yet. As we wallow in this symphony of squalid social relations, this gorgeous apologia for the unspeakable, we can still find ourselves swept up in the power of epic movie-making. We can cheer as Scarlett dances the Virginia reel and builds her lumber business from a foundation of pure grit, vowing that, like her, we will never be hungry for anything again—all the while glorying in the most magnificent fact of all, far more thrilling than Tara (with or without its curtains): Her side lost.

"I met a boy, a great, gorgeous dude, a funny, cool-ass guy…He is the kind of guy who carries himself like he gets laid a lot, a guy who likes women, a guy who would actually fuck me properly. I would like to be fucked properly!” – Gillian Flynn, Gone Girl

“People say children from broken homes have it hard, but the children of charmed marriages have their own particular challenges.”
