Drama, Suspense/Thriller


Despite a tawdry story that involves killers, rapists and Nazis (oh, my!), this American remake remains as cold as its Swedish winterscape. David Fincher's rather methodical treatment of Steve Zaillian's somnolent screenplay doesn't match the audacity suggested by an ethereal opening credits sequence set to Trent Reznor's cover of Led Zeppelin's "Immigrant Song," nor the kinkiness of a serial killer who cues up Enya's "Orinoco Flow (Sail Away)" as a prelude to slaughter. Rooeny Mara is terrific in the title role, but the actors frequently appear to be mechanically hitting their marks, often in conspicuous proximity to product placement.
