Photography is the Focus of Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

Attention all movie lovers! Photographers especially will find the recent release “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” very interesting since the central mystery revolves around an old photograph. While the Swedish feature film is graphically violent in parts and definitely not for kids, the movie — based on the best-selling books by Stieg Larsson — is compelling and intriguing on many levels. It is available to “Watch Instantly” on, and is the first of a trilogy (the second movie, “The Girl Who Played with Fire,” is currently in theatres, and the third one, “The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Next,” will be out in the fall).

Of course, American versions are already being planned, details below courtesy of
