jchastained reblogged this on Don, how did you come, by way of Australia? and commented:

When 2014 is reflected upon in a few years, the character of Amy Dunne and what she symbolises about today's society, is one that is going to be remembered without a doubt. "In this age of seeing helicopter, ego stroking, high self-esteem parenting, where a specific, defining image of a child is plastered on the walls from the get go, where no boundaries are set and given a rude awakening when they reach the real world, building children up so unrealistically high, that is just a disaster waiting to happen in every shopping centre and on television, Amy Dunne is a nightmarish wake up call to the world, hitting us over the head with a question mark about why we place so much stock in completely unhealthy levels of self-esteem. " - My review of Gone Girl (http://monumentalpictures.wordpress.com/2014/09/30/gone-girl-2014/) "I think we are living in a narcissism epidemic. We’re encouraged to share our lives in a way that is presented as fun. But what it really means is that we end up editing them – we want to make it seem that we are more enviable, and having a better time, and going to more amazing parties than all our friends are. If you watch people taking photographs of each other now, you see that everyone is aware of the cameras in the room and everyone is aware of how they want to be seen, and immediately thinks, “Quick, change my expression, I don’t want to make that face for the camera.” But if you look at old albums from your parents’ or grandparents’ generation, there’s an amazing candour in people’s faces you just don’t get these days." - Rosamund Pike

David Ehrlich's top 25 films of 2014

That hotly anticipated annual event has finally arrived – David Ehrlich’s top 25 video. Always superbly edited and offering up an eclectic mix of films, Ehrlich’s videos promise, at the least, to be an exhilarating film experience, and always simultaneously make me want to make a countdown video of my own and never attempt one. 31 more words
