Steven Spielberg‘s Lincoln will face an audience of smirking Manhattan wiseacres at the New York Film Festival tonight. I’m expecting the first tweets around 10 pm Eastern. I would really and truly love to hear that (a) Lincoln is much better than Amistad, (b) Daniel Day Lewis‘s Walter Brennan-by-way-of-Matthew Modine voice is a component in a great Oscar-worthy performance, (c) John Williams‘ score doesn’t suffocate or infuriate and (d) Guido Bazin needs to go back to New Jersey and stay there because he’s wrong about the boredom.
