Lincoln ★★★

All the small parts in this movie are so well cast. It does a good job of contextualizing the politics of the time and situating Lincoln in them, not shying too much away from statements that make you squirm a bit. It’s at least conscious of the fact that the story is centered on white men. I am not sure I can expect more than that from stevie schpiels! That ending dragged on huh. Can the music stop swelling for once. And I’m sorry the main role of black people in this movie is to stand there and happy-cry at what the president did
