A Sneak Preview of Daniel Day-Lewis As Lincoln

October 31, 2012

   Just got this from the Top Secret Writer:

Saw Lincoln at a sneak preview last night. Day-Lewis is amazing and will be nominated for an Oscar for certain. Fields is wonderful as well (the best scene in the film is a confrontation between her and Lewis) and Tommy Lee Jones is also great. It is all a grand history lesson and a bad movie--long and dreary. Lots of talking in rooms. The movie looked fabulous as do all Spielberg films but the director and the writer were too in love with their subject to step back and display more of his human failings (when they do the film sparkles). Its tough to treat Lincoln as less than a diety, since in reality he was as close to one as a human can be. I loved the film--but then I loved John Wayne's The Alamo.
