Only correct. Do you agree?
The short filmography of David Fincher includes some of the most intense and sophisticated movies launched between the end of last century and the beginning of this one. The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo is this director's ninth feature film and is an eloquent testimony of his maturity and full command of the technical issues. This is Fincher's first film after The Social Network and is a new version of a Swedish trilogy based on stories written by Stieg Larsson. Compared to the European version, Fincher's adaptation leaves behind the exaggerations of the original plot and brings to scene something pretty more plausible and frightening. The actors -- Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara -- are as convincing as the soundtrack, both fitting the heavy rythm of Fincher's productions. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo confirms Fincher as a formidable storyteller; however... it isn't daring. No doubt the film does justice to its creator, but it doesn't reach the magnificence of its predecessors.
