The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

We're always a little skeptical of foreign film remakes — after all, subtitles aren't that irritating — but when you've got names like David Fincher, Daniel Craig, and Christopher Plummer attached, you can view with confidence. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo ($20) is based on Stieg Larsson's book of the same name, which was made into a 2009 Swedish film that also pre-dates this latest version. A murder mystery at heart, the film is anchored by a breakout performance by Rooney Mara, who plays the mysterious Lisbeth Salander to perfection as she and Craig's Mikael Blomkvist work to uncover the truth. Oh, and the Reznor/Ross soundtrack doesn't hurt, either.
