Life struck me as several cuts above “meh” but never made me jump out of my seat.
From Michael Hanna:
Only twice in the last two decades have you steered me wrong at the movies, by convincing me to avoid "The Matrix" (original) and "Star Trek: Insurrection." Until that is, when I made the mistake of going to see the cut up and disjointed "Salt." However that is not my purpose in writing. While watching Angelina Jolie being, as you say, "gritty", it struck me how perfect she would be for Modesty Blaise (1960s Bond type except tougher and female). None of the previous celluloid incarnations has been anything other than camp, but the Ms. Jolie of "Salt" would bring the right seriousness to the role, given the right script, of course. You have clout beyond anybody, so may I humbly suggest you read one or two novels (if you haven't already) and drop a hint or three in the right sets of ears. I'm sure I wouldn't be the only guy panting to see it!
