Rants and Raves: Lisbeth Salander

it's inetersting that some people really didn't get the point the author was trying to make....I just looked at the magazine shot of Rooney Mara as Salander in W and I am really sorry but it's horrible! http://www.wmagazine.com/celebrities/...
to kernel_thai and emilyclarimont: most of the people who are fans of the books (and the swedish movies) are fans of Salander - the woman who tried her whole life to not to be depicted as the photo shoot did! I personally feel that Salander as a character is bigger than the books and the movies (that's how powerful the character is)...I am not sure I expressed it correctly...for me she is "more" that just a "character from a book"....

Rants and Raves: Lisbeth Salander

to Inthebuff: I agree with amills, you missed the point...the author is not critiquing the movie, but the ad campaign. I think what the author said is on the spot, it doesn't really matter in what language the posters are - they are promoting the swedish movie.
Lisbeth in a tutu is indeed in the "really???" category. Also the hugging - my impression from the book was that Lisbeth was not a real fan of hugging...or any kind of expression of "love" emotions, she garded herself all the time! She gets naked because there is nothing wrong with being naked, it was not erotic at all! And in my opinion, Rooney doesn't look anorexic either....
