Details

"In Zodiac, every time a piece of evidence trembles into view, it quickly recedes again. That movie is an expression of philosophical despair: the truth can never be known. Dragon Tattoo says the opposite: it celebrates deduction, high-end detective work - what Edgar Allan Poe called "ratiocination." Everything can be known if you look long and hard enough, especially if you have no scruples about hacking into people's bank accounts, e-mails, and business records."
