The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo ★★★★½

I remain the same on this as I did on first time watch. It's not up there with the very best Fincher but then 99.9% of films aren't either. This is an exercise in taking literature and giving it a singular director's spin, Fincher blessing the film with a cold, crisp look throughout, amazing sound, two fantastic lead performances, even if Craig doesn't even attempt an accent, and a harshness that doesn't wallow but certainly makes you feel it.
