Jodie Foster tells Radio Times in a new interview that studios are “ruining the viewing habits of the American population and then ultimately the rest of the world.”
“Going to the movies has become like a theme park,” the two-time Oscar winner says of the current state of affairs. “Studios making bad content in order to appeal to the masses and shareholders is like fracking — you get the best return right now but you wreck the earth.”
“It’s ruining the viewing habits of the American population and then ultimately the rest of the world. I don’t want to make $200 million movies about superheroes.” Sometimes she even finds herself questioning her career choices and asking herself, “Why didn’t I go into law school? Why didn’t I pursue the path of academia?”
I asked that question myself after watching Contact and The Brave One.
