The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo

If you've read the book and seen the Swedish version there is nothing explicitly new here, but I would say it's still very worth seeing. This is slick, well-made Fincherized adult entertainment. Rooney Mara really delivers as Salander and Daniel Craig brings his rumpled sexiness to Blomkvist. There are some beautiful shots in the film, mostly colored in icy blues and sallow browns. I'd see it again just to watch some stunningly composed shots of Salander chasing down one of the film's many sadistic creeps on a motorcycles through the woods. As my friend Kevin says, Fincher's got the chops.
