One of the best ways to really get to know a film is to a) watch it more than once, and b) absorb everything its creators have to say about it. We'll be the first to admit how difficult it is to truly delve into the making of a film when all you're given with a filmmaker, actor or actress is 10 minutes, which is why some of the longer conversations on Charlie Rose's show are always well worth a watch. On a recent episode, Rose dedicated over 50 minutes to The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, inviting director David Fincher and his main cast (Rooney Mara, Daniel Craig, Christopher Plummer, Robin Wright, and Stellan Skarsgard) on to discuss the latest big-screen adaptation of the popular bestselling book.
Their chat is a good one, if not a little awkward at times, and for those who've watched the film it's a really great extended look at what went into making it. We'll throw kudos to Rooney Mara, who admits during the chat that she hasn't watched the movie and refuses to do so without seeing it with an audience because she doesn't believe in watching movies any kind of way. Find out what she had to say about becoming Lisbeth Salander -- not to mention what they all thought of the brutality featured in the film -- by watching the roundtable discussion below.
