After Amy has disappeared, Nick and the detective go to his office to follow up on his wife's first "clue". Inside his office, on the bookshelf, there are some books, two of which are Michael Chabon's "Manhood For Amateurs", non-fiction essays about being a husband, and the mistakes and surprises of being a father, and Jonathan Franzen's "Freedom", an American novel concerned with the themes of marriage.

David Fincher is a phenomenal craftsman. His visual style dominates every inch of the frame but why is it that I left the theater so untouched, so unscathed. I told the story to someone over dinner and I couldn't do it without laughing. This is no comedy, or is it? So, what is it about David Fincher's movies that include some shocking stuff without shocking me. I can observe without participating. Cold, maybe that's it. The passionate story is told without passion but with a feverish attention to the cosmetic veil that covers or masks the real story. I wasn't bored, just impatient and a bit put off. I admired the performances and wondered about the casting of Neil Patrick Harris and Tyler Perry. I suspect is code for something but I can't imagine what. After all said and done, goo see it.
