    I would like to commend you on your discussion of MONSTER. This remains one of the most peculiar and unusual movie-going experiences I’ve encountered, and much of your discussion hit the nail on the head. I remember when it first came out, I was immediately skeptical by Roger Ebert’s beyond-phenomenal review, hailing it as the best film of the year and Theron’s performance as among the greatest in the history of cinema. Whenever I read hyperbolic reviews like that, my overrated-radar mechanism always goes up. But MONSTER has stuck with me since the first time I saw it and has increased in merit with each repeated viewing.

    Many of the points you made in your discussion were things I had thought about but never really conceptualized. More than any film I’ve ever seen, it made me consider my power of empathy. It is an amazing credit to Patti Jenkins and Charlize Theron and the filmmakers who made me sincerely care about an individual who, at least on paper, would be the antithesis of anyone I would want to waste a thought upon.

    The fact that we eventually care about and feel for a character who can be basically reduced to a prostituting serial killer is an incredible high-five to its creators. I leave this film not condoning what has happened but appreciating what has transpired that led to the heartbreaking conclusion.

    I firmly believe that in decades to come we will view Theron’s performance on the same plain as Streep’s In SOPHIE’S CHOICE and Leigh’s in A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE, a performance to be applauded and studied for decades to come.
