Some of it is too broad, and I wish it dug a little deeper at times, but this is one of those rare inspirational films…
From Alexander M. Taylor
Just saw "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo." I couldn't help but to think of it as Gus Van Sant's "Psycho," compared to the original. It never felt like an interpretation of the novel but rather a shot-for-shot remake of the original movie. I wonder how this sits with the Academy? Do they nominate Rooney Mara although it was a complete imitation of the original? Also, something seemed a little imbalanced in the sound mix. Take for example the "cold wind" in the early part of the movie. Very distracting, considering that wind, when you are standing outside as the characters were, is not loud.
If it were my "first time" for Tattoo, I would have found it as enjoyable as the original.
