Weird. Because at a text level, this is exemplary. But I’m coming around to the idea that Spielberg isn’t quite suited to it, his usual paternal obsessions and emotional crescendos shoehorned (chillily) into a narrative about compromising your beliefs and/or playing dirty for a perceived greater good.

Kushner’s formalized but fascinating talk often leaves little in the way of overt emotion to guide some of the movie’s very best moments; searching in vain for an emotional pinpoint, Spielberg offers moments that are surprisingly un-Spielbergian, that lend his Lincoln an impressive breadth of thought and zone of inward shadow.

[The scene where Lincoln and his wife talk about his dream] could be read as either an arbitrary acknowledgment of Lincoln’s documented interest in psychic phenomena or a brief opportunity for Spielberg and cinematographer Janusz Kaminski to reprise their watery fishbowl motif from Minority Report, but it really serves the more interesting, ambitious purpose of establishing Lincoln as a comedy of the narcissism that binds prophecy with political policy.

  • Edna Sweetlove's rating of the film Lincoln

    What a load of boring, dreary, long-winded, wordy, dragged-out tripe. The wonder is that Day-Lewis managed to stay awake long enough to ham his way through the film. And it's accompanied by one of John Williams' most plagiaristic and sloppy scores ever. The only redeeming features were the photography and the hilarious stove-pipe hats - the only interesting bit would have been watching Lincoln getting (cont...)

  • Mark Garrett's rating of the film Lincoln

    Austere and restrained, a surprisingly "for adults" movie. The ending sucks, but I think that's because while this is a movie really about Lincoln's relationship with the 13th amendment, there had to be some pretension about it being about the man himself. This is a Lincoln horrified by the Civil War, matured by it and driven to grey hair and martyrdom.

  • Zachary George Najarian-Najafi's rating of the film Lincoln

    A better title would be "White People Stop Slavery". The portrayal of Lincoln as a cool uncle crossed with saint does a great injustice to the real man. I don't think he'd be pleased how he's presented here.

  • comeandsee's rating of the film Lincoln

    Beat all my expectations easily. Daniel Day Lewis is out of this world, he never gives bad performances but this is something else. He has the gravity, the power, the quietly spoken wisdom, he at once seems to become the man and something more magical. I think the narrative holds emotion, it holds a beautiful education within the movie, and it feels like so much more than a biopic. Truly masterful.

  • Zachary W's rating of the film Lincoln

    Even more than in Spielberg's other work, the clash between the mundane and the mythological takes centre stage here. Day-Lewis grounds Lincoln as a quiet, determined, but deeply sad man. Lincoln the legend only ever appears through oratory or through Spielberg's purposeful reflection or framing, and always following a simple human moment. Lincoln is about family and politicking, but as art in cannot contain history.

  • Jake Cole's rating of the film Lincoln

    Contains insurmountable Spielbergisms, but this is a surprisingly powerful tribute less to Lincoln the beatified saint of America than the ways slick politics, moral (not to mention legal) gray areas and agonizing compromise can eke out something major. As is true of all of Spielberg's historical films, the omissions hang over the proceedings, but this is both one of his most low-key and intellectual expansive films

  • Matthew Martens's rating of the film Lincoln

    If you can forgive the cloying shot of Lincoln's servant gazing upon the Great Man with worshipful gratitude as he leaves the White House for the final time -- and I think you should; such moments are mercifully few -- you may find in Lincoln the best, the most thorough, and the most gripping movie yet made about legislative politics in America, and how the process, for all its awfulness, sometimes delivers progress.

  • Duncan Gray's rating of the film Lincoln

    In which Mr. Spielberg walks through the valley of politics, acknowledging what a cynical, ironic, underhanded game it is, while still emerging with his optimism and faith intact. This means that while it has all the virtues/drawbacks you'd expect from a Spielberg historical piece, it also leaves you with much more to think about than its detractors would have you believe. His best in years.
