The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo: Mara-the-Roo and Triggers Too

You asked for it, NetFlakes listeners, and now you’ve got it. After a neck-and-neck-and-neck poll, you chose 2011’s The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo as the movie that you most wanted to hear Dylan and Caroline take on.

Things get personal when Caroline opens up about her experience being triggered by the explicit sexual violence of the film.

We also talk about the problems with both protagonists – one for replacing one stereotype with another, the other one for just being a dork.

The other bits of NetFlakes content that came up were:


Caroline Diezyn is a podcast co-host and blogger at NetFlakes, and a PhD student, writer, and artist in London, Ontario. You can find them on Letterboxd and Twitter.

Dylan Clark-Moore is a podcast creator and blogger at NetFlakes. You can find him on Letterboxd and Twitter.
