A colleague of mine noted that David Fincher’s new film Gone Girl completes a trilogy of sorts detailing male-female relationships gone awry (or, perhaps in the case of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, relationships that start at “awry”).
Not that I’ve read it, but the original title of the book that has become The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo was Men Who Hate Women. David Fincher’s adaptation makes all too clear why the title changed.
“I just wish that nobody made a movie of me while I was still alive”, laments Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg. Tough cookies.
