Re: Lincoln: Comments and reviews

Fantastic movie - excellent acting all around. Nice to see Lincoln made so... human. The high nasal voice was a bit odd at first, but from what I've read that's accurate so I'm glad they kept it. I was a bit unsure about making it so much about the politics at first but it was very engrossing.

Jones' Thaddeus Stevens kinda stole the show, and I loved every minutes of it. Didn't upstage Lincoln's own story of course, but I found the two most emotional scenes to actually be Stevens' big ones. I felt aghast and slightly sick when he managed to control himself despite provocation, and incredibly buoyed up when he and Lydia were reading the successfully passed Amendment.
