Larger than life
Went to see Steven Spielberg's "Lincoln" today with my friend L. It was a full house and we arrived only 15 minutes early, so were seated in the third row center. We hope to see it again from a vantage from which you can see the whole screen at once! But, once as accustomed as one can be to the distorting angle, I found I was glad to be so close. Why? Because Daniel Day Lewis' Lincoln is so magnetic a character I actually felt grateful to be close to him! I know, I know - it's just a movie, an actor, a screen (and history, and History). I don't care: I loved him.
