    Fincher in 2011 is obviously past the journeyman stigma, creating his own style that pervades through each film, and that's why most people like him... but you can literally sense his apathy towards everything other than Lisbeth throughout the film. the film in large part doesn't work because of how disconnected its story is; Fincher can shoot as scene as dark & revolting as the scene where Lisbeth gives her rapist a blow job but then follow it up with a…

    While this certainly isn't an easy film to watch, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is still a very dark and extremely captivating film thanks to the great direction from David Fincher, the flawless performances from Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara, some nice cinematography and a haunting score. Its suffers from its overlong run time and a few scenes that don't really add up to anything but this is still a solid and engrossing effort from Fincher.

    Finally got around to seeing this version. I think I'd have to give the Swedish version the edge over this version if only because I like Noomi Rapace better than Rooney Mara (and thanks to these films, I will probably always confuse the two actresses) and because I saw the other version first (although I gave myself plenty of time to forget much of the plot). I did enjoy Daniel Craig in this even if he was a bit mumble-mouthed.…

    David Fincher is definitely one of my favorite filmmakers. Only a handful of contemporary directors have such a great respect for classic filmmaking and storytelling, and he is arguably the best of them. He is, in my opinion, a contemporary master in the craftsmanship of thrillers. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is another winning film of his.

    In this movie, Fincher pulled me into that dark world with his trademark gripping atmosphere. His films usually have a slow pace,…

    The books are a lot of fun and this film is bleak and miserable from start to finish.

    A lot of people have criticised the way that the lead male in the stories, the journalist Blomkvist, seems to be extremely appealing to women, however with Daniel Craig in the role this issue seems harder to justify. Daniel Craig is definitely not a spry figure in his twenties, but there's no doubting that plenty of women would find him sexually attractive.…

    Here we have David Fincher's version of the stunning Stieg Larsson novel of the same name. My immediate fear was that Hollywood would dumb down the brilliance of the written word and produce something that that was more accessible to a main stream audience. Thankfully finding out that the certification for the film was 18 was the first reassurance that the upsetting subject matter would be dealt with properly on screen.

    A lot of people, like myself, will have read…

    David Fincher is one of my faves. I totally worship at his shrine. He's a fucking god when it comes to film and I am so not ashamed to admit that I'm a total Fincher fanboy. Anyway, I think I prefer this version of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo to the Swedish version, even though I saw the latter first. I don't know, Rooney Mara as Lisbeth just seems more vulnerable physically, which makes her kicking so much ass…

    Let me start with the things I loved. First, Rooney Mara. She completely loses herself in this role, to the point of non-recognition. She has the attitude, acting chops, and bravery to take on such a harsh, and venerable role. Next is the overall direction by Mr. Fincher. The pacing to this film is incredible and the attention to detail is immaculate. Also, the washed out/sterile look of the entire film really helps give it that extra sense of dread…
