For your viewing pleasure

I will start off with the disclaimer that I haven't seen this movie, and I haven't read the books.  But I would have to have been working with a bag over my head to have not noticed that Stieg Larsson's Milennium trilogy isn't the hottest thing since sliced bread.  For those of you who have eagerly devoured the final book - The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest - and are feeling bereft (the author died in 2004, before the publication of his wildly popular books) we have something to offer.
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is now available on DVD, starring Michael Nyqvist as disgraced journalist Mikael Blomkvist and Noomi Rapace as the goth computer hacker Lisbeth Salander.  This Swedish production was Europe's highest grossing film of 2009, and the critics have raved about the performances.  If you have read the books, you know that the subject material is very dark and disturbing....this film does not pull any punches as far as unsettling content and images go, and it is rated R (read the label on the back for particulars).
