                                                'Lincoln' review: Daniel Day-Lewis brilliant

                                                The voice takes Lincoln down from his memorial and transforms him, from a timeless sage back into the product of particular time and place, the mid-19th century, the American frontier. There are entire stretches in "Lincoln," especially in the Cabinet scenes, as you hear the complexity of his legal and strategic thinking, that you might very well forget you're seeing acting - even forget you're in a movie theater - and instead believe that you're sitting in a room with the 16th president. Looking toward Reconstruction and the nation that would emerge from the conflict, Lincoln decided that he needed a constitutional amendment banning slavery in all the states and territories, that the Emancipation Proclamation might not be enough to eradicate slavery forever. [...] there was a chance, a good chance, that such an amendment might prolong the war. [...] there began the intense congressional battle over the 13th Amendment. "Lincoln" was made to be enjoyed by everybody, but the more you've read and the more daguerreotypes you've seen, the more you'll appreciate the film's astonishing re-creation of historical tableaux, such as Lincoln's visit to the battlefield or the scene outside the Capitol on the occasion of his second inaugural. Spielberg doesn't linger on the battle scenes, the way he did in "War Horse" and "Saving Private Ryan," but the little we get are equal in ferocity, and they convey the nature of the conflict - the hand-to-hand fighting, the mud, the blood, the bayonets - with a brutality unique in Civil War movies.
