Hitting the target

September 22, 2007

KUDOS to Kenneth Turan for his funny and spot-on review of "The Brave One" ["Making Strange Bedfellows," Sept. 14]. It is hard to believe that Jodie Foster felt she was creating a thoughtful and sensitive character. Erica Bain's perfunctory vomiting doesn't even occur until after she's stacked up her third corpse.

In a time when anger and violence have caused so much horror in the world, it is a shame that Foster chooses to exploit the thrills of simple-minded mayhem for the sake of the Hollywood blood-and-vengeance machine. I think she is mature enough now to place her talents on a higher level. Maybe "The Brave One II" can be about remorse and forgiveness rather than bullets and body counts.
