Jodie Foster at her first San Diego Comic-Con for Elysium, July 13th
Did you ever see Ridley Scott’s Silence sequel, Hannibal? Or would that have been just too strange?
Oh no, I’ve seen them all!
Really? You saw the remake of Red Dragon, too?
What was your take on those films?
I mean, I don’t really have an opinion on them, and certainly not for print, but they’re [based on] great books. What I think is interesting is all the other movies that got made subsequent to that that didn’t recognize what was great about Silence, you know? What was great about it was the point of view of this scared, small person who had been traumatized as a child. It wasn’t about blood or gore or “Isn’t this terrible, all of these terrible things?” There was a real goodness to that movie, and that’s what a lot of those other movies didn’t get.
THANKS FOR LENDING US UR VIEW ON THE HANNIBAL MOVIES THERE, JODIE. Oh, and she also said that she’s seen every episode of True Blood. STOP IT! I CAN’T LOVE YOU ANY HARDER THAN I ALREADY DO!
