The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo (2011)

David Fincher’s signature style serves this twisted retelling of the Swedish book/film well. The differences between the two versions are subtle and both are valid. The score by Trent Reznor is very effective in a minimalist sort of way and all the acting is solid. And despite being the ‘Hollywood’ version, it strays away from the expected conventions of this type of story. All in all, a good flick well served by a distinct tone and atmosphere. And having seen all three of the Swedish films, I do hope the Fincher and Co. continue the series in this new fashion. March 3 at 1:17pm
