This is a surprise?

Jodie_foster The New Republic's Christopher Orr starts off his review of The Brave One as follows:

What in the world is wrong with Jodie Foster? For years, arguably decades, her career has seemed haunted by her turn as Iris Steensma in Taxi Driver, as if the fictional experience of playing a pubescent prostitute had left real-life psychic scars.

Hold it right there; I think Mr. Orr may have just answered his own question. Although it might be helpful to check in with Dakota Fanning a few years down the road for confirmation.

It broke my heart when I heard the news of Dakota's role. I honestly see no point in telling these kinds of stories. The evening news seems to do a decent enough job.

Why should I pay to go see a politically-correct "Death Wish"?

And for that matter, I heard a long interview with Foster about the movie on NPR... not once did she mention Charles Bronson.
