The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by David Fincher

Mr Fincher, you are a genius.
Your version of the book adaptation is infinitely better than the Swedish one.

I am a fan of Stieg Larsson’s trilogy and have obviously watched all three Swedish episodes of the Millennium trilogy.

That you have selected Daniel Craig to be Mikael Blomkvist was one of the greatest ideas! That you have decided to create proper old school intro to the film, which in itself is a piece of art – a thrilling combination of Bond films intros with Matrix, that you have braved the length of 158minutes, that you have gone so bold – for all that, you deserve a big applause.

I cannot wait the next two parts. Good Luck!

Stage Fright by Alfred Hitchcock

Two femmes fatales: a blonde one and a brunette. One framing the other into a murder tale. A classic film noir with a fading Marlene Dietrich. Do not miss Mr. Hitchcock’s cameo appearance.
Great footage of 1950’s London, amazing supporting roles. The intrigue drags a bit towards the end, but the ending in itself is fantastic.
A classic film with a lot of little hidden gems to be appreciated; lighting, costumes, set decorations and the hand of the master!
