Angie In The Beltway
February 26, 2007
The Financial Times is reporting today that Angelina Jolie will be made a term member of the Council on Foreign Relations, one of the most prestigious (and hard to get into) think tanks in Washington. Her term will be defined by "nurturing the next generation of foreign policy makers." Sorry SAIS and Kennedy School, you'll no longer be needed to mold young policy leaders. Angelina will be adopting them from now on. --Sacha Zimmerman

One of the most emotionally affecting moments of Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow comes, unfortunately, during the closing credits, when jazz vocalist Jane Monheit sings "Over the Rainbow." It's a wistful, haunting rendition that plays beautifully off Judy Garland's Wizard of Oz version, becoming at once old and new, an homage and an original. It's this challenge, of simultaneously conjuring the classics and offering something fresh and vital, that largely eludes Sky Captain, released on video today.
