The World Takes Note of What Angelina Jolie is Doing


This is a very good example of how substance can creep into popular culture and into the cinema. The Berlin Film Festival is being held here in Germany and it certainly looks like Angelina Jolie and her new film, "In the Land of Blood and Honey" are receiving some acceptance. Whether this leads to any kind of commercial acceptance in the United States is really going to depend on how strong the material is.

The subject certainly sounds intriguing. The Balkan Wars were the great shame of the 1990s and I am wondering if she captured that.
