The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo

I've already written at length about this movie and its Swedish predecessor.

This latest film clip is nowhere near Blu-Ray quality, but is much sharper than the previous versions.

  • * White asterisk: expanded format.

  • * Blue asterisk: not mine.

  • No asterisk: it probably sucks.

Hard Knocks


Johnny's comments:

Back to the VHS vault.

Hard Knocks is a drama about a teenage girl Samantha (Tracy Mann) who has had her fair share of trouble. Out of juvie after performing an armed robbery with her mates, she's keen to start again going straight. Of course, that isn't going to be easy. Her old friends haven't moved on at all, in fact they've dug deeper into that hole, so she attempts to avoid them. She has also started modelling and meets a woman who tries to get her better modelling gigs, except it turns out the guy doing the hiring will get her gigs if she sleeps with him. All the while, it feels as though Samantha is going to find it hard to get out of her hole and this is amplified when the cops who arrested her begin to harrass her. Hard Knocks is a pretty simple film, you've seen it all before, but it's short film (barely 75 minutes) which definitely helps. This is a character study, so the plot gets the short shrift and so do most of the supporting characters. Tracy Mann does some good work here as the whole film rests on her and is pretty convincing both pre and post-juvie. The film is perfectly servicable but hardly groundbreaking or for that matter. riveting.

Again, as with all stuff taken from VHS, the quality is down, but this one is pretty poor I have to say. Doubt there will be a DVD release any time soon. Ah well...
