So I have this teacher who was talking about the movie Se7en/Seven and how it was so disturbing and gruesome that she couldn’t finish watching it.
Then my classmates said they watched Dragon Tattoo and said it was so dark and violent and disturbing that they couldn’t finish watching it. They were “uncomfortable.”
Both parties said they were incredibly freaked out.
And I wanted to yell at them:
“You’re SUPPOSED to be freaked out and disturbed! They’re David Fincher movies! He shocks his audience and makes them uncomfortable! That’s what he does!”
But then they probably would have thought I was crazy. And none of them would have known who David Fincher is anyway.
I finally got back in town today and so I went to buy my copy of Dragon Tattoo. Then while I was checking out, I saw all the Swedish ones next to the register and a sign that said “5.99 with any purchase.” So I determined that was the universe trying to tell me I needed these movies.
As if my family didn’t think me crazy already, it probably didn’t help my case when I was waving the American DVD in their faces in all its “bootleg” glory saying “Look how clever it is!!! LOOK!!!”

“Normally seven minutes of another person’s company was enough to give her a headache, so she set things up to live as a recluse. She was perfectly content as long as people left her in peace. Unfortunately society was not very smart or understanding.”
