By Sasha Mitchell, posted on November 23, 2011

“Damaged, cyberpunk heroine”, “bisexual cyberpunk avenger”, “horny, cyberpunk hacker”… these are your Google results for Lisbeth + Salander + Cyberpunk, as featured in film reviews courtesy of Movieline, Telegraph, and the increasingly horny and irrelevant Rolling Stone (not a fan of the latter, sue me.)

Eyes Never Sleep: Occupying Singularity

By Woody Evans, posted on November 13, 2011
