There's a reason that "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" has gotten so much buzz around Hollywood in recent weeks and months – it's because the source material and the original Swedish film are both very, very good. Before the developing American adaptation of the crime thriller finds its way into theaters, movie lovers can investigate the "Dragon Tattoo" hype for themselves this week as director Niels Arden Oplev's critically acclaimed movie arrives on DVD. But if you're still not sure that taking the plunge is worth a DVD purchase, check out what MTV's very own Kurt Loder had to say about "Dragon Tattoo" after viewing the film several months ago.
"The story is fat with characters, most of them various Vangers, some of them back-in-the-day Nazis, one of them possibly a murderer," he writes, adding that the film has "Silence of the Lambs" overtones. "It's a movie in which there's a lot going on, almost all of it interesting."
