The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo ★★★★

“It’s hard to believe that the fear of offending can be stronger than the fear of pain, but you know what? It is.”

Part 9 of My David Fincher Ranking

      Probably the darkest and most brutal David Fincher film. And that’s saying something. Some of these film sequences were some of the most brutal I have had to sit through. And while I thought this did take me a while to get into. I even fell asleep 15 mins in (I was just tired and came back after a nap) but this was consistently engaging. Even though it may have dragged at parts and some scenes that weren’t particularly lit to well. But for every one of my flaws I had, there was an excellent scene to rival my issues. The twists and turns that unfold are truly unpredictable and the performances are amazing. Rooney Mara in particular, gives the best performance I’ve seen from her. She has such a fantastic presence and command over every scene she is in and plays off of Daniel Craig so well. Great film that I’d highly recommended to watch alone. 

Favorite Scene: “I am a Rapist Pig”

Overall Rating: A-
