Collateral

This is how I want to see Tom Cruise- not as an all-American hero, but as a weird, empty-hearted sonofabitch. I read somewhere that this is the kind of role he's seeking these days. Well good!

Jaime Fox is sweet. I'm all for an action hero who doesn't know how to use a gun and who steps carefully through a broken window. Yeah, I'm sick- so sick- of men of steel. Lets have heroes who look like us.

I like it how night-time Los Angeles- with its myriad coloured lights- serves as a metaphor for an unfeeling universe. This is the L.A. of Blade Runner- only it's now. We have caught up with the sci-fi visionaries and are living in their cities of the future.
