Steven Spielberg Amerika Syarikat, 2012

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
