On the topic of Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, I read a review of David Fincher's film a few weeks ago that praised Fincher for "not being as graphic" in the depiction of the rape scene as the Swedish film was, because the reviewer was uncomfortable with seeing the "full on" violence of rape. I remember thinking, "Well, yeah, rape SHOULD make you extremely uncomfortable because it's sick and wrong." (I disliked the graphicness of both film versions because it oversexualized Lisbeth as a woman.)
Yeah, I don’t really think it’s fair he’s getting praise for doing a graphic rape scene just because someone perceived it as *less* graphic than another one.
Unnecessary rape scene is unnecessary. No one should receive praise for it.
