The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo
Dir. David Fincher
Aus Rating: MA15+
Running Time: 158mins
Meanwhile, as I was writing this review I had the soundtrack playing and... can we discuss this for a brief moment? So, Fincher's The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is 158 minutes, yeah? So how come the musical score by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross is 173 minutes long? Jeepers, that's a bit excessive isn't it? Especially when so many of the musical cues are identical. I ended up deleting two thirds of the album since I just did not need it all on there! Of course I kept "Immigrant Song" by Karen O, which is a great opening credits song choice if ever there was one. Still I don't even know how the original soundtrack is longer than the actual film it accompanies, let alone that works let alone why.
