From an interview:
What do you think is the larger social commentary of The Brave One, which in some ways plays as a straight-up Dirty Harry revenge movie?
(Jody) Here's my commentary: I don't believe that any gun should be in the hand of a thinking, feeling, breathing human being. Americans are by nature filled with rage-slash-fear. And guns are a huge part of our culture. I know I'm crazy because I'm only supposed to say that in Europe. But violence corrupts absolutely. By the end of this, her transformation is complete. ''F--- all of you, now I'm just going to kill people with my bare hands.''

I have an interesting spin on Ms. Foster; This past weekend I met my Brother's fiance', since they are marrying later in 2008. She is a practicing psychologist that does part time work for local police departments in Virginia. We were watching college football when a movie trailer for "the brave one" ran. I remarked that I had seen the movie, when my Bro's bride-to-be piped up that she had seen the movie as well. I told her about how I thought it was somewhat hypocritical that Jodie went and made a movie about a person who took matters into her own hands regarding self-defense, yet was totally against private firearms ownership. i said that I guessed it was all of that Yale-harvard liberalism that caused it; She came right out and said, that "no, actually Ms. Foster has a huge inferiority complex." when I inquired as to how she knew this, she told me that she could tell by the way she spoke and answered questions on the TV show interviews she gave. So I asked her how accurate her predictions were with other people and she said pretty accurate. So then I said, what about me? what are your impressions, to which she replied, "I think you are a Sheepdog among a bunch of sheep" and then proceeded to reach into her purse and pull out her wallet, producing her carry license from her home state of Virginia........
My response: I reached over, gave her a big hug, kissed her on the cheek and welcomed her to the family, inviting her out to the range the next time they were down.
Now I am going to have another relative-gun toter in amongst all of my liberal gun hating relatives in liberal land........Indeed God has smiled upon me...
