CityArts Editor Armond White addresses the current controversy between critics and Hollywood aboutThe Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. The issue industry-forced "embargoes" on reviews is not "inside baseball" shop talk. It effects the way movies are sold and received in the entire culture. White rips away the naivete that has confused journalists, bloggers, gossip columnists and industry figures such as producer Scott Rudin and director David Fincher.
