The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo ★★★★★

After high hopes of seeing this film after the reviews and general buzz on Twitter, I wasn't disappointed. Possibly tainted because I haven't read the books it's based on or watched the original movie, regardless, I found it in parts harrowing, spellbinding, cinematic, tense and most of all, amazed by the sheer quality of the film. Backed up by an amazing Trent Reznor-scored soundtrack, and you have the makings of a modern masterpiece.
