LINCOLN

02/01/2013

 
Daniel Day Lewis is great as Lincoln; and Janusz Kaminski's cinematography is the best thing that ever happened to Steven Spielberg. 250 minutes...
 
 
If you'd told me, years ago, that Bill Murray would one day portray F.D.R. I'd have hit you with my Dr. Scholls sandal, and yes, he's awesome! Laura Linney is so watchable, you're gonna love it.

My life mission of viewing all of Michael Fassbender's films has lead me to this 2008 British TV mini-series. Flawed, yet captivating period-piece set during the English Civil War (1643-1660.) Yes!
