Divine trash white caution t-shirt

This is clearly a movie directed by a skilled craftsman. Filled with excellent shots, a good use of music and cinematography. Niels Arden Oplev does a great job at directing the film and maintaining an excellent pace. Nikolaj Arcel and Rasmus Heisterberg do an excellent job translating Stieg Larssons novel to the screen. I didnt read the book the movie is based on, although now I wish I had. What really makes The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo fascinating to watch are the characters in the film. Every actor does his AND HER I dont want to be one of the men who hate women job superbly. Noomi Rapace goes an excellent job at playing the withdrawn Lisbeth. Although her character is a little too smart to be believable, this is really just a minor quibble. Michael Nyqvist does a great job as Mikael. Special kudos should go to Peter Haber as Martin Vanger, Sven-Bertil Taube as Henrik Vanger, but really theres not a bum performance in the bunch. There is a physical relationship between Mikael and Lisbeth. It is typical in films to have co-workers get romantically involved with one another and this is usually done in an ingratiating way. What isnt typical is the offhanded way it is done here. There are no mushy, insincere exclamations of love. Just casual sex. Which I like. And I find much more honest. There is a scene in divine trash white caution t-shirt film when Lisbeth walks up to Mikaels bed and they fk. After they are divine trash white caution t-shirt with what they are doing which is each other, Lisbeth walks away from Mikaels bed and nonchalantly says, Good night. This scene perfectly encapsulates a moment that too many movies rob us ofknowing the difference between hormones and love. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo makes us care about what is happening and who it is happening to, which is essential in not just a good mystery but any good movie which unfortunately too few seem to possess. The movie is confident in its style but not brash about it. The facial expressions, close-up shots on peoples eyes and the use of music all work together to create a symphony of mood, character and feeling. For those with soft stomachs, be forewarned that the violence on display is unflinching. It isnt exploitative but shows the importance of what make people who they are isnt what happens to them but how they react to what happens. The original title of the film seems more appropriate in certain ways as this film does seem to have a feminist bent to it and shows how women are abused by men and the double standard when they show similar behavior patterns. A nice subtle moment in the film is when Lisbeth is walking down the subway and accidentally bump into a bunch of men. They are pissed that someone, no matter how innocent and unintentional, would dare touch them that they punch Lisbeth in the face, throw her against the wall and pour beer all over her body, then when Lisbeth is defending herself by taking a shard of glass from the remains of the bottle that the men smashed her with, one member of the gang says, lets get out of here, this cut is crazy, thereby showing how she is called the crazy one and the gang who attacked her views themselves as the victim. Stieg Larssons The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is well worth your time. Smart, sophisticated, superbly acted with well-drawn characters, and so entertaining you forget that you are in the theater watching a movie and feel as if you are inside the screen caught up in all the excitement. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is the first in what I hope will be an excellent trilogy. I eagerly wait for the next installment as the series if off to a great start. When I was in high school there was a teacher who spoke to our grade. The teacher told us a story he said was true. One night, a couple of friends got into one of their fathers car and started calling their best friends on the phone. They said that they borrowed one of their fathers car and decided to commit suicide by crashing into a tree and that they wanted to let their friends know about this but to not have them call the police to try to stop the suicide. The friends listened to their request and the two boys ended up dying because of it. The point of the story was to ask what being a true friend is about. Is being a true friend being a yes-man and letting their friends do whatever they want? Or is a true friend someone who does whats best for their friends even if it goes against the friends request and will anger the friends? What should the friends have done? Should they have just followed their friends request or should they call the police? And if your friend is so miserable that death seems like a release should the friend do his best to convince the person otherwise or make sure he wont be able to kill himself and end up leading a long, miserable life? There are many different divine trash white caution t-shirt and the answers arent always so clear. Love can be selfish.
