Jodie Foster berates Sin City

Jodie FosterJodie Foster isn’t afraid to tell it like it is. She says she found Sin City—directed by Robert Rodriguez and based on Frank Miller‘s graphic novels—offensive. Though many critics gave the film high ratings, Foster says she turned it off after renting it on DVD. She told USA Today, “That was so painfully cartoonish I was offended.” As a mother of two boys, she says doesn’t like watching films that feature the abuse of young children. “I don’t know how you enjoy or laugh about a child abduction and molestation. What part of that sentence is funny? I can’t get beyond that. I don’t know if everyone understands the impact of that movie’s message.”

    thats not what the movie is about, its about someone who saves her and how she becomes a strong woman after the molestation.
    if she had read anything about it she would know how strong and powerful the movie is.
    “That was so painfully cartoonish I was offended. she does know that it was a comic… and that it was supposed to look like that for a reason, it was a huge step in the future look of movies.
    she is just a snob and wants to be in the public eye because her new movie is a load of shit

    And “Silence of the Lambs” was such a hopeful, life-affirming movie! And oh, nice photo!
