I’m glad that Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln lived up to my expectations of it. It was a great movie that told a great story in a riveting way. It will win several Oscars when the time comes, and it deserves to. I don’t think anyone’s going to try bringing Lincoln to the screen again for a long time, either. Except for Saving Lincoln, which I’m looking forward to in a big way.
One of the benefits, besides the actual movie, was the publicity campaign surrounding the film’s release back in November. And this image, taken at a bus stop a few blocks from my house on a rainy night, has a certain spectral feel about it.
There have been many Lincoln posts in this space already, but people have been examining Lincoln from every possible angle since 1865, and the well hasn’t run dry yet. And it never will, either.
