    The extended edition. Very satisfying mystery.  My third watch and the acting and timing just get better each session.  I'll watch the American version eventually but wonder if it would ever have been filmed without this. Uh oh, blasphemy!

    I have never been the biggest fan of the of the book in general, and a lot of the issues I have in the book bleed into the Swedish and American versions. On purely a film making level, Fincher's movie is better, it looks better, sounds better and moves better. It's Fincher. But I will give the orginal Swedish version this. Rapace is a better Lisbeth, as in she carries more emotional weight, and this movie really leans into the…

    I saw the American remake of this around the time it came out, and was in love with the mystery and the chilling atmosphere. Watching the original now was just as thrilling as I remember the later version to be, partly because I forgot many of the details, but mostly thanks to the excellent acting and directing.

    The first installment of the Millennium Trilogy (from the books by Stieg Larsson) is available in two versions, the original 153m version, and a 186m extended cut ... both are captivating films in which a discredited journalist collaborates with a reclusive and troubled computer hacker to solve the 40 year old disappearance of a young girl. Compared to the American remake with Daniel Craig and Roony Mara, this Swedish original is edgier and more believable, and Noomy Rapace's Lisbeth is…

    The first adaptation of Stieg Larsson’s phenomenally popular Millennium novels, the books that can be credited for starting a wave of Scandinavian crime drama that shows no signs of stopping, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo arrived with a heavy reputation to live up to. Introducing us to nominal hero Mikael Blomkvist (Michael Nyqvist), a disgraced journalist whose laconic cynicism towards everyone around him conceals a drive to root out injustice whenever he smells a story in it, the story…
