The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, David Fincher, 156 mins (18) **<br />Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol, 133 mins, Brad Bird (12A) ***
Friday 23 December 2011
Hiring David Fincher to direct the American remake of The Girl with The Dragon Tattoo, the first part of Stieg Larsson's Millennium trilogy, must have seemed a smart move by the producers. The gothic matter of family secrets, ritual murders, dogged sleuthing and state corruption looks an ideal fit for a film-maker who's delved deep into the psycho-horrors of Se7en and Zodiac. Yet while you can depend on Fincher's immaculate visual style as much as on his nose for moral putrefaction, it's hard to see how he has enhanced the Swedish original, or even much changed it – aside from getting rid of the subtitles that US audiences find so tricky.

Jane's Addiction are both a product and a victim of their time. Formed in the same city (Los Angeles) in the same year (1985) as Guns N' Roses, they ascended to their pinnacle in 1990, even then overshadowed by the heavy metal titans next door, only to then split up for the first of what would be two times in 1991. Their history is fractured and staccato, one of acrimony and reformation, but the warm embrace afforded the band by tonight's crowd at Koko speaks volumes about the impact that their first two albums had on a generation of young rockers.

In all the year-end fuss about Jessie J, Clare Maguire, etc, Anita Blay, aka CocknBullKid, seems to have been largely overlooked – a criminal oversight, as her debut Adulthood suggests she may be the most idiosyncratically talented young British artist of her era.
