I'm moved to see [J.R. Jones] come out so strongly in support of Todd Solondz's latest ["After Dawn," April 29]. I've read many, many reviews of Palindromes, pro and con, but yours is the most spirited and articulate celebration (I started to say "defense") of the controversial director I've seen. Boy, when people hate his movies they really hate them. He transforms the most mild-mannered critics into hysterical scolds.

But you know the main reason I write? To tell you, in case you didn't know, that you are part of a minority of film critics who described Sharon Wilkins's build without getting nasty. I thank you.
