From DreamWorks, Steven Spielberg directs two-time Academy Award(R) winner Daniel Day-Lewis (Best Actor, THERE WILL BE BLOOD, 2007, and MY LEFT FOOT, 1989) in LINCOLN -- with an all-star ensemble cast including Sally Field, Tommy Lee Jones and Joseph Gordon-Levitt. This inspiring and revealing drama focuses on the 16th President's tumultuous final four months in office as this visionary leader pursues a course of action to end the Civil War, unite the country and abolish slavery. Complete with never-before-seen footage featuring Steven Spielberg and the cast, who take you deep inside the making of the movie, LINCOLN sheds light on a man of moral courage and fierce determination. View larger View larger View larger View larger As with the great John Ford (Young Mr. Lincoln) before him, it would be out of character for Steven Spielberg to construct a conventional, cradle-to-grave portrait of a historical figure. In drawing from Doris Kearns Goodwin's Team of Rivals, the director instead depicts a career-defining moment in the career of Abraham Lincoln (an uncharacteristically restrained Daniel Day-Lewis). With the Civil War raging, and the death toll rising, the president focuses his energies on passage of the 13th Amendment. Even those sympathetic to the cause question his timing, but Lincoln doesn't see the two issues as separate, and the situation turns personal when his son, Robert (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), chooses to enlist rather than to study law. While still mourning the loss of one son, Mary (Sally Field) can't bear to lose another. Playwright Tony Kushner, who adapted the screenplay, takes a page from the procedural handbook in tracing Lincoln's steps to win over enough representatives to abolish slavery, while simultaneously bringing a larger-than-life leader down to a more manageable size. In his stooped-shoulder slouch and Columbo-like speech, Day-Lewis succeeds so admirably that the more outspoken characters, like congressman Thaddeus Stevens (Tommy Lee Jones) and lobbyist W.N. Bilbo (James Spader), threaten to steal the spotlight whenever they enter the scene, but the levity of their performances provides respite from the complicated strategizing and carnage-strewn battlefields. If Lincoln doesn't thrill like the Kushner-penned Munich, there's never a dull moment--though it would take a second viewing to catch all the political nuances. --Kathleen C.

War And Peace (1956)
Manufacturer: Warner Bros. Brand: Warner Manufacturing
War And Peace (DVD)War and Peace is a commendable attempt to boil down Tolstoy's long, diff icult novel into 208 minutes' screen time. In recreating the the social and personal upheavals attending Napoleon's 1812 invasion of Russia, $6 million was shelled out by coproducers Carlo Pon ti, Dino de Laurentiis and Paramount Pictures. Some of the panoramic battle sequences are so e xpertly handled by second-unit directo r Mario Soldati that they appear to be Technicolor-and-Vistavision newsreel footage of the actual events. Still, the film falters dr amatically, principally because of a lumpy s cript and King Vidor's surprisingly lustreless direction. In addition, t he casting is wi ldly consistent: for example, while Audrey Hepburn is f lawless as Natasha, Henry Fonda is far too "Yankeefied" as the introspec tive Pierre. Proving too long and unwieldy for most audiences, War and P eace died at the box office; far more successful was the epic, sc rupulo usly faithful 1968 version, filmed in the Soviet Union.]]>
