The Girl with the Drag Queen Tattoo

Girl with the Drag Queen MTBy Michael Fitzgerald Troy


Thankfully, my esteemed colleague Barbra Dillon so eloquently covered the nuts and bolts of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo in her spot-on film review of David Fincher's new feel bad thriller adaptation of TGWTDT; that way I can stick to my silly, inane rantings.

Let me be clear, I loved everything about this flick. I've been a fan of Fincher since he directed Madonna's "Vogue" video. (It's true!) Suffice it to say, he's gotten somewhat edgier since then. Although, he did direct NIN's "I Wanna Eff You Like an Animal" vid. Perhaps, that's why Trent Reznor supplied the totally bitchin' soundtrack for this tour de force. (Look out, stairmaster. Here I come!)


Hacking, slashing, action, indian ink, the kitchen sink, intrigue, suspense, grit, grime, and Daniel Craig's butt crack! All with a touch of lesbianism thrown in for good measure. What's not to love?

Shockless should we be if, upon this season of Oscar, The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo isn't The Girl with the Golden Statue. Word.



 




Michael Troy is a deeply superficial person. Born in the midwest in the '70s, Michael came to Los Angeles to pursue his bi-polar career path as an actor and artist. 2005 saw the release of Michael's first published book, Homo-Hero's Big Book of Fun and Adventure (www.greencandypress.com). Michael has contributed to the Lady Gaga comic book from Bluewater Productions and has his hand in various other upcoming projects. Michael has performed stand-up comedy at all of the major comedy clubs in Los Angeles and is making his triumphant return to the main stage of The Comedy Store in September. Michael offers an off-beat sense of humor as the star of such youtube cult classics As The Gays on Film (www.youtube.com/fullfrontaltv), A Minute With Margot, a loving tribute to Superman legend Margot Kidder (http://www.youtube.com/user/rktcommander), and currently hosts a vlog style series Lethally Blonde over at www.monsterburg.com. Sitting alongside industry heavyweight Phil Jimenez at the "Divas and Lassoes" panel for the 2010 San Diego comic-con, Michael maintains and cherishes his "underground" status. A staunch believer in Blonde Ambition, Michael hopes his new comic about shallow blonde super heroes in Los Angeles, The Blonde Squad, will set the world on fire (or at least brighten it a bit).
