Lincoln

“Lincoln”
A surprisingly subtle movie
Conjuring the past
History remade
 
The 16th president
The folksy deliberation
The Idiosyncrasies
The Contradictions
Of an actual human being
 
Cinematic Americana
Something grubbier than Americana
Pomp and historical circumstance

A fascinating movie
Hushed and intimate
Exquisitely right
Inspiring

 “Lincoln,” directed by Stephen Spielberg, sounds like it is going to be an “important movie” as well as an entertaining movie.  I plan to see it this weekend.
