Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in travel, but also discuss history, folklore and films and books. Hope you have a nice stay!

Lincoln

Lincoln

Just got back from seeing Lincoln

Of course Spielberg nails it.  It's really perfect.   Beautifully shot and gorgeously appointed, the performances are stand out and of course Daniel Day-Lewis at center stage commands, as usual.

Do not miss this.  Sit with your fellow citizens and watch something in our past unfold before your eyes.   Watch history being made and revel in the life Spielberg breathes back into our nation's past.

There are many ugly things in every people's past.  Human beings can be wicked, cruel and inhuman to each other.

It is a sublime thing to watch us rise above that.   Even if just for a moment.  Spielberg shows us this moment.  We should all watch, remember and savor it.
