There are a lot of talented people in this movie. What a mess.
One of the greatest performances I’ve ever seen. Daniel Day-Lewis is a marvel and completely transforms himself in every frame. His power, torment and compassion runs deep in every look, expression and word uttered. He is Lincoln.
Tony Kushner is a genius - an arbiter of language, wit, compassion, intelligence and poetry. He’s a national treasure as a dramatist and he shines so brightly in this film.
This is a wonderful and under appreciated film that is even more powerful…
