For years, it has been easy to dismiss Angelina Jolie as an extremely beautiful flake. Even her work for humanitarian causes could seem like the image-burnishing, manic-y upside of her earlier, darker bad-girls days. Not anymore. In the Land Of Blood and Honey, which she wrote and directed, is a surprising triumph in so many ways. I have to say, I completely underestimated her.

If you missed Bob Simon's exceeeeeedingly polite interview with Angelina Jolie on 60 Minutes, watch it here. All week CBS had been teasing the piece with a snippet in which Jolie recalled her wild, "dark" days and said she was lucky she hadn't died. Did Simon press her on that? He very courteously asked her to be more specific and she declined. OK. On one side is lurid TMZ, on the other courtly 60 Minutes, in between is a real interview we'll never get. Still, there's a reason to watch.
