    which feeds into the master narrative which awards Lincoln hero status.

    those of you who are interested in an alternative view can check out this Mother Jones article.

    i adore daniel day lewis and have respect for Spielberg although i am fully aware of his gloss, as in what is called 'the Spielberg sheen,' literally the focus he uses on his cameras to convey a romantic quality (full disclosure: i am a romantic myself).

    but continuing to foster an uncritical view of Lincoln does our country no good.

    i will certainly see this film.

    but it is long past the time when we should be able to see a film which depicts Lincoln in all his complexity.
