Much was made of David Denby's embargo-breaking review of 'The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo' in this week's edition of The New Yorker. (Denby and the magazine published a review of the highly anticipated release a full eight days before the agreed-upon embargo allowed.) 'Dragon Tattoo' producer Scott Rudin even got involved in the brouhaha, sending a scathing email to Denby that "badly damaged" 'Dragon Tattoo' by writing early, and that the critic would no longer be allowed to see another Rudin production. (Sorry, David; you'll have to pay to see 'Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close' with the rest of us!) Now, 'Dragon Tattoo' director David Fincher has entered into the fray, with a bit of real talk that will probably make some iconoclastic film critics wilt.
