    The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

    ★★★★

    Despite some seemingly central issues that would doom any other movie - the plot revolving around a not terribly interesting case tht happens 40 years prior, unnecessarily confusing at times, gratuitously brutal, an almost 3 hr runtime - David Fincher somehow makes this work.

    Wasnt really into this - albert finney is fun sort of and the beginning is cool when there not on the train lol but its too long, all on a train and only die-hard Agatha Cristie fans will love this movie, of which there are none alive today.

Every actor is in this movie. No one needs another person saying Grand Budapest is a great movie but it is.
