    Noomi, You have a fan from México and after this interview even more. I found you not just a beautiful women also an a very interesting and sensible person.

    All the best for you and you career.

  2. Noomi is stunning!!!!

    She is very graceful, sexy, intelligent, and personable!!!

    She demonstrates that she can play against type.

    I’m excited to see her career take off in America!!!

    Ring, Ring Noomi!! Super stardom is calling!!

    David, NEVER start a question with the word “SO” again. It’s lame. Practice!

  5. David Poland says:

    NM… for me, the “so”s or the “hi”s are part of the process. Not having them on the interview doesn’t require practice or even much effort. I have always been able to edit them out. I have chosen not to do so.

    Sorry to poke at your pet peeve, which apparently superseded your interest in the other 29:58 of the interview, but I guess we’ll have to agree to disagree on this one.

  6. NM says:

    It’s not even remotely a pet peeve, and you’re not sorry so why say so? But it does come across as amateur, at least to me. A verbal tic. If you don’t mind it, I don’t care that much because I haven’t got time to listen to the whole 29:58 anyway, but anything that makes it harder to do that I’d think you would prefer to avoid, although there are no ads in it so I suppose you save some bandwidth if no one logs on.

    Must say, I loved the “Girl” trilogy and Noomi in it. You go, Ms. Rapace!

    A very intelligent interview not superficial at all. Only someone as nice and dedicated as Noomi can play Lisabeth. She is so personable and a remarkable individual. Very down to earth. A rare actress these days. Only One criticism from me: I only wish you showed her departure at the end of the interview and all the social niceties at the end of a conversation instead of ending it abruptly.

    This is the best interview out there with Noomi Rapace. Charlie Rose did an ok job, but his was a bit stiff, too formal. I’m hoping the Fincher remake is a good film, it might prompt more knucklehead Americans to see the originals. When they do they will see that Noomi owns the role of Lisbeth forever.
    Great interview.

“We don’t have any idea what the universe is. Wise people have always told us that this is proof you shouldn’t think, because thinking leads you nowhere. You just build over this huge construction of misunderstanding, which is culture. The history of culture is the history of the misunderstandings of great thinkers. So we always have to go back to zero and begin differently. And maybe in that way you have a chance not to understand but at least not to have further misunderstandings. Because this is the other side of this question—Am I really so brave to cancel all human culture? To stop admiring the beauty in human production? It’s very difficult to say no.”

“I have a license to carry in New York. Can you believe that? Nobody knows that, [Applause] somebody attacks, somebody attacks me, oh, they’re gonna be shot. Can you imagine? Somebody says, oh, it is Trump, he’s easy pickings what do you say? Right? Oh, boy. What was the famous movie? No. Remember, no remember where he went around and he sort of after his wife was hurt so badly and kill. What?  I — Honestly, Yeah, right, it’s true, but you have many of them. Famous movie. Somebody. You have many of them. Charles Bronson right the late great Charles Bronson name of the movie come on.  , remember that? Ah, we’re gonna cut you up, sir, we’re gonna cut you up, uh-huh.

Bing!

One of the great movies. Charles Bronson, great, Charles Bronson. Great movies. Today you can’t make that movie because it’s not politically correct, right? It’s not politically correct. But could you imagine with Trump? Somebody says, oh, all these big monsters aren’t around he’s easy pickings and then shoot.”
