For a man so funny, so vital, so literally larger than life, "Lincoln" remains a Daguerreotype - careful, quiet and dully framed.

Day-Lewis's Lincoln is the spiritual center of the film, but he's ringed by a multitudinous cast of characters.

    All the elements of the film were top notch, as Spielberg concentrates on the political nature of Lincoln passing the 13th Amendment in the final days of the Civil War. And yes, Daniel Day Lewis is worth the price of admission.

    Having this showing sell out is not beyond the realm of possibilities. I just bought my ticket online to be safe.

    I just saw this tonight. I see that reservations are closed. Let me know if anyone cancels and it is still possible to add one for both the movie and dinner.

    Thank you.
