Beware of the Girl With the Dragon Tattoo

Cassandra Feliciano | December 27, 2011 | Lifestyle Story City Life Reviews Culture

The new film is even more Fincheresque than his previous thrillers like The Game and Zodiac—in other words, it’s not for the faint-hearted (see “What David Fincher’s next remake should be,” December 2011). Fincher’s Dragon Tattoo plays out the circular psychological obsessions of the hunters (a journalist and his punkish computer hacker accomplice) and their prey (the suspect of a 40-year-old missing persons case) on his most severely macabre backdrop. Hardly any gruesome, heart-stopping details seem to be left out. Morbidity aside, the direction is eerily wonderful and the protagonists actually endearing—a must-see that should probably be consumed on an empty stomach.
