Girl with the dragon tattoo in swedish is awesome!!!

Aaron, glad to hear you say that. I liked the movie. But last Sunday a couple of friends told me the American version is much better. I'll watch it someday, but usually I prefer European versions. They're more real, darker, less likely to have a fake'y happy ending.

Take The Vanishing. Without spoiling the ending, I much preferred how the European version ended. I'll never forget that ending, whereas the American version ending is utterly forgetable.

I like movies that seem as if they were written by a 1930s (or whatever) existentialist, smoking unfiltered cigarettes and drinking strong expresso in a Parisian coffee house, talking with friends who are fond of saying "life is meaningless" in a dozen different languages that they all understand.
