Jodie Foster’s turn as FBI-agent Clarice Starling in “The Silence of the Lambs” was a terrific, terrific performance. Since then, however, her career has been a series of movies that have been entirely unimpressive (though she does deserve a lot of credit for nixing the “Hannibal” gore fest). Judging from what Debbie Schlussel writes, Foster’s hellbent on continuing her downward slope with “Flight Plan” (which I thought was a psychodrama like that dreary space alien contact movie, but apparently is something altogether different).
Schlussel has the details, including a pile of spoilers.
If Schlussel is correct, then “Flight Plan” seems like the movie version of that awful “Crescent of Embrace” faux-morial
