Holiday Letter Two: Movie Review

Dear Girl With the Dragon Tattoo,

Your new movie is, like you, slick and graphic.  I had to look away during the most brutal scenes. Again like you, your movie is intriguing, compelling and layered.  It raises questions that it unapologetically doesn’t answer, while taking 158 minutes not to answer them.  It challenges truths that are accepted as givens, while relying on traditional motifs to affect the challenge.  It exists as part of a mainstream pop culture phenomenon, while exploring the lives of characters that live well beyond the margins of mainstream.
