Steven Spielberg's latest movie <LINCOLN> didn't win him the best director nor the best film in the 85th annual Academy awards. However, for him to chose a non American to play one of the most iconic roles for his own nation made us believed that Daniel Day-Lewis who were the real Lincoln instead. Hence, applause shall also be given to Day-Lewis for his extraordinary performance for portraying Lincoln and that won him the best actor without further doubts alongside with his fellow competitors at the academy. Besides, Spielberg's fan may get annoyed in <LINCOLN> for not having too much action on his usual films as the revealing drama focuses on the 16th President's tumultuous final months in office and in a nation divided by war where Lincoln pursues a course of action designed to end the war and unite the country and abolish slavery. Predictably, epic drama like this carried a lot of intense dialogues, for many of those who did not study or understand the American history, the movie may lead them into bewilderment. Nevertheless, this is not an easy movie to make in terms of the production set, R&D for the history relevantly gathered, finding the right casts and etc. Phenomenal actors like Tommy Lee Jones, Sally Fields, David Strathairn, Joseph Gordon-Levitt  and may other supporting roles in making this movie worked was indeed another great mileage achieved.
