Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Tony Kushner defies the conceits of Hollywood and delivers a film that's heavy on dialog. Further, he defies the Hollywood three-act structure, giving Spielberg a script that flows differently from anything we've seen in the recent past. It's powerful stuff, not mindless comic-book fare, that requires concentration from its audience. And the audience that I attended concentrated nonstop. Even though the story is driven more by Tell and less by Show, this film is sure to be honored for many technical achievements, like make-up, costumes, art direction, musical score, and more. Most impressively, Daniel Day-Lewis makes Lincoln human. It's a high-wire act that could easily fall into caricature, yet Day-Lewis (does anyone remember that he's British?) makes the character convincingly real. Best of all, there won't be a sequel. It isn't a "tentpole," but the kind of intelligent movie that almost never gets the green light in the US. See this movie to show studio dealmakers that there's a solid audience for quality films!
