It’s been a fun ride. With our review of “Gone Girl” on the Next Best Picture Podcast, we have come to the end of our 2014 retrospective. The NBP Film Award Nominations are out as are the NBP Film Community Award Nominations (Winners to be announced this Sunday) and David Fincher’s film has been a constant presence amongst them as it has been in the public’s subconsciousness since its debut in 2014. Grossly overlooked at the Academy Awards (with a lone Best Actress nomination for Rosamund Pike’s horrifying and complex performance as Amy), we explore the film’s themes, performances, technical merits and more! Joining me for this Patreon podcast review I have Amanda Spears, Dan Bayer, Ryan C. Showers, Danilo Castro & Patreon guests Michael Wachowiak & Cesar Infante. Be sure to check out all of our 2014 reviews of “Selma,” “Ida,” “Foxcatcher,” “The Grand Budapest Hotel,” “Wild,” “Inherent Vice,” “Whiplash,” “The Imitation Game,” “Nightcrawler,” “American Sniper,” “The Theory Of Everything,” “Interstellar,” “Boyhood” & “Birdman.” Thank you once again to the Patreon listeners and to the rest of you who gave us something truly fun to do during a pandemic. We’ll see you next year for our 2013 retrospective!
