Just saw this movie last night and had a lot of different responses - I really enjoy analyzing movies on historical figures from a number of different perspectives - how the figure and historical situation is interpreted by the director, what were the motives for making a movie on this particular person at this time, etc. I know that Lincoln is a popular topic right now because it is the 150th anniversary of his death, but I thought Spielberg might be attempting to draw some similarities between Lincoln and our current president & situation. What are your thoughts?
