    Not a bad film, but I'm curious to see David Fincher's version.

    I hesitate to say much about this film as I think it's probably much more enjoyable if you go into it blind as I did, but it's easily the best film I've seen so far this year and it's going to be very difficult to top.

    The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo (Män som hatar kvinnor) is adapted by director Niels Arden Oplev from Stieg Larsson's novel of the same name. It stars Michael Nyqvist as a disgraced investigative reporter…

    I really liked the mystery involved in this. That was a really intriguing bit to the movie. I thought both of the leads were great. The movie is very brutal, which makes sense as to why it got such a big following outside of the US and why Fincher would want to do a remake. The brutality while compelling is a bit over the top and especially in those moments where someone should come forward at any point. Regardless of that though this was a fun watch and I was quite riveted once the mystery got going.

    A mystery thriller that directly confronts the mysogyny - so often taken for granted or submerged in the undercurrent in so many of those Hitcockian narratives - through the mysteriously feral Lisbeth Salander, whose powers consist primarily of a stealthy intellect and a photographic memory, as opposed to what market research suggests that men aged 18-35 want to see in a "strong female character" (compare, e.g., Mad Max Fury Road).  And the performance of Noomi Rapace is simply nonpareil.

    So...this is essentially a genre piece (detective fiction, I guess), and that's not a knock against it, but I think I just expected this film to be more exciting and interesting (not even profound, just interesting) than it actually was.

    Noomi Rapace delivers an electrifying performance, but it's not enough to overcome a plot that just isn't all that captivating with plot mechanisms that also aren't that interesting (if I had to find a way to characterize it, it would be that the movie achieved the bare minimum of suspense and interesting characters to keep my interest. But it doesn't ever really elevate itself above that).

    "You know everything about me, and I don't know shit about you. Not a damn thing."

    I think I preferred this to the David Fincher version. Fincher's has better cinematography, and probably better acting from the more minor characters, but everything else this version either topped or was on par with. And Fincher is my favorite working director, so that's some pretty high praise. As someone who…

    ★★★★½ Rewatched by Joshua Drake 21 Jun, 2016

    This is an excellent adaptation of the first novel in the Millenium trilogy written by late Swedish author Steig Larrsson. Direction is pretty great. The acting is pretty fantastic, especially from the two main leads, Michael Nyqvist and Noomi Rapace as Mikael and Lisbeth. Music is decent. The film is in Swedish language, so, there are subtitles, but there are English language versions of the original Swedish trilogy of films. Script is well-written. Cinematography, production design, costume design is awesome.…

    Ora capisco perché Fincher l'ha rifatto qualche anno dopo. Perché è essenzialmente un film di Fincher in svedese. E fatto meglio.
