I recently went and saw the David Fincher version of "Girl With the Dragon Tattoo". I have read the series and have seen the original movies. But, I have to say that David Fincher did a excellent job directing the movie. It's crazy that Bjurman (the guy who raped Lisbeth in the film) spent a whole day locked in his room crying his eyes out after filming those scenes. In my own opinion, which may contradict some of yours, I think David Fincher's version is much more better and "dark" than the original. And of course, Rooney Mara did a EXCELLENT job. Hopefully she wins Golden Globe for Best Lead Actress. She deserves it. What do you think?
