Hands down, it was one of the best films I have ever seen in my life. I love that Spielberg kept Lincoln’s marvelous sense of humor intact. It was like someone took my favorite book and translated it verbatim to the screen. Daniel Day Lewis pretty much WAS Lincoln. Literally everything about that film was perfect.
And I’m fairly certain I’ve seen this one (along with pretty much every other one ever made). Yet I sit here, poised on the edge of my seat, desperately hoping that by yelling at the TV, “RUN, LINCOLN, RUN, HE’S GOT A GUN,” documentary-Lincoln will somehow hear me, go, “Well, gee, thanks,” and run out of the theater and we’ll all live happily ever after and I won’t sit here being upset.
Spoiler alert: Documentary Lincoln didn’t listen to me.
My day is now ruined.
In your FACE, John Wilkes Booth!
