"There’s too much anal rape" in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo to get an Oscar nomination. I think we’re very safe," Fincher told Entertainment Weekly.
I've long been a fan of the Dragon Tattoo books, ever since I experienced that harrowing Swedish bum rape in the bath (shout to my internet homeboy Chris Blohm for helping me through that difficult time).
