Total Film: 50 Best Movies Of 2011

50. The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo

The Movie: David Fincher takes on Stieg Larsson’s modern classic, with Rooney Mara taking on Noomi Rapace to make the character of Lisbeth Salander her own. Think Se7en, but darker.

Impact: Only #50? Consider it an honourable mention, as it’s not out until Boxing Day. But it’s already shaking the film world after New Yorker critic David Denby broke the review embargo. His verdict – “mesmerising,” apparently.
