Joe Morgenstern (WSJ) agrees: show kids blood

Had an interesting email exchange with Joe Morgenstern of the WSJ. Turns out we were both stunned silly by the violence of Mr. and Mrs. Smith. At first Joe fretted that he was turning into a curmudgeon and losing his mind, but eventually realized that it was the studio execs who had lost theirs.

Thanks Joe – i’ve always enjoyed your writings, especially as a somewhat liberal voice in the moral conservatism that is the Journal.
