The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo

Rated R 158 minutes 2011

I very much liked the original Swedish film based upon Stieg Larsson’s book The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. Unfortunately, I don’t like David Fincher’s Americanized version. It’s one of the dumbest film projects of the year, a movie whose very existence constitutes a major waste of good, creative energy. I don’t see the logic in remaking the Swedish film so soon—especially when the American remake is also set in Sweden. It irritates me that Fincher, one of our finest directors, has dedicated a big chunk of his time to a film that feels like a re-creation of director Niels Arden Oplev’s 2009 original. While Rooney Mara is OK in the central role of computer-hacker Lisbeth Salander, Noomi Rapace did it much better, and that was only a couple of years ago. There is absolutely no need for this film.
