Universal praise goes, rightly, to the Spielberg/Kushner/Day-Lewis "Lincoln"

It really IS an awesome film and certainly brings attention to the complexities around the issue of slavery. I'll see it again!

It is an awesome movie and Daniel Day-Lewis is awesome in it. It deserves any award it gets nominated for.

I saw the movie and thoroughly enjoyed it. In my history lessons, maybe because I am Canadian, I didn't get the sense of the man. But for me, the movie built a portrait of a man and his complexities, an insight into the soul.

I would like to see it again.

The author makes it look like Lincoln's presidency and the Civil War itself were all about slavery. That is just Not true! Slavery did not really become an issue until the middle of the war, when the Union was losing. Lincoln was put in office by the railroad magnates and their banksters. The South wasn't as concerned about Lincoln's slavery views, (considering Lincoln had successfully represented slave-owners reclaiming run-away slaves). They were more concerned about Northern railroad barons invading the South with railroad lines everywhere. (After the Civil War, the South saw just that, at an unprecedented rate.) Also, even as Lincoln was drafting the Emancipation Proclamation, he stated that if it were possible to reunite the Union without freeing a single slave, he would do so in a heartbeat. Lincoln was a dupe puppet of Northern finance interests, and i believe he realized it by 1863, when he claimed fear of the banksters more than Confederate forces. I believe, he tried to make amends by issuing the Greenback currency, which he considered his greatest accomplishment as president. And, i believe that the Northern financial interests realized Lincoln had had a change of heart in 1863. There are a Lot of connections between Booth and money interests worldwide. He had given many command performances before European royalty and banking interests and the Northern elite.

A little off topic, but Carrie B and John B, thanks for sharing that you also have to wait for the video due to health issues. Sometimes I feel so alone in this! but thanks to you, I know today not only that I have company, but that I am in excellent company indeed.
