My Favorite Insight of the Week

"It's amusing to hear people claim Ms. Jolie has a limited range or bemoan her choice of projects when the sheer, breathtaking, abundant fact of her is the embodiment of everything that draws us to movies in the first place. To announce that you prefer Joan Allen or Laura Linney is to reveal that in your fantasy life, you're Ashley Wilkes."

-- from the excellent best-of-the-year's-DVD's article "Killer Couples, Killer Saucers and 'Kiss of Death'" by Stephanie Zacharek and Charles Taylor, The New York Times. (Okay, it's from November 6th, but I didn't read it until today, so it still counts.)
