Lincoln (2012)

Stephen Spielberg and Daniel Day-Lewis transform the American icon back into a human being.

Those who believe that politicians can't accomplish anything of substance think they are being skeptical and sophisticated, but they are actually just lowering expectations, and helping create a self-fulfilling prophecy.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

"It's a hell of a thing, this Lincoln, a portrait of America as a parade of eloquent, stubborn, patriotic, rebellious, manipulative, passionate talking heads spoiling to be heard. Spielberg and [screenwriter] Kushner don't stop for flashbacks and backstory. Lincoln is all forward thrust and hot-damn urgency. Of course, to audiences who prefer visual stimulation to verbal fireworks, Lincoln may seem like a lot of white dudes in wigs shouting at one another. To each his own."

    Interesting to see the behind-the-scenes politicking that went on. Makes me want to do some historical reading!
