Critic Reviews for Stieg Larsson - The Man Who Played With Fire

All Critics (15) | Top Critics (4) | Fresh (13) | Rotten (2)

  • You don't get a lot of Lisbeth Salander here. But you do get an overview of fascist/nationalist movements in Sweden and beyond over recent decades, which lends this well-crafted effort interest well beyond the strictly biographical.

  • Stieg Larsson: The Man who Played with Fire is exciting in the way it covers various different points of interest, while incorporating just enough of Larsson's personal life.

    February 5, 2019 | Full Review…
  • The best-selling author's life was just as compelling as his fiction.

    January 26, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Though documentary re-enactments can come across slapdash, Georggson's attempt to create an authentic portrait of his subject with period-appropriate production design and costuming results in a mood not unlike a David Fincher film or a Larsson novel.

    Top Critic
  • With the rise of populism and alt-right movements in Europe and North America, the doc leaves you wondering what Larsson would make of the current state of politics.

    April 25, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…
  • Stieg Larsson: The Man Who Played With Fire is particularly unnerving due to its timeliness, as there are clear parallels between the events portrayed here and our current political climate in the United States.
