FILM REVIEW: Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

4.16.10



The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
Directed by Niels Arden Oplev
Starring Mikael Blomkvist and Noomi Rapace


Review by Seth Rogovoy


In this compelling Swedish thriller, a disgraced journalist and a renegade hacker -- an odd couple who make total sense together - join forces to solve a 30-year-old murder mystery that threatens the foundations of an industrialist family, and, by implication, Swedish society itself. The two wind up in deeper than theyíd bargained for, attracting forces who donít want them to succeed. The race is then on.

It totally works as a thriller, but even more so, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is a must-see for the revelation that is Noomi Rapace, the young hacker who comes across almost like a superhero. Itís a role that in American would be played by Natalie Portman, but itís hard to imagine anyone embodying it with the skill and allure of Rapace.
Playing at the Triplex.
