but, Lincoln It was the movie that tackled the seemingly impossible task of resurrecting the nation’s greatest president. Spielberg made the brilliant choice not to try to cover Lincoln’s entire life, but to focus on the crucial passage of the Thirteenth Amendment that freed all slaves. The political intrigue is impressive, and Daniel Day-Lewis’ uncanny performance as the titular lead proves why he’s the best actor in cinema history. while Lincoln It is definitely a very “talking” movie, the final moments when the bill is passed incredibly moving.
Fablemans It saw Spielberg deal with the one hero he’d never dealt with before: himself. In a semi-autobiographical film based on his childhood, Spielberg tells a personal story about his family’s dysfunction, the anti-Semitism he suffered, and why he remains cinema’s staunchest advocate.
