The Next Best Picture Podcast – “Lincoln”

By Matt Neglia 

Our 2012 retrospective is coming to an end this month. Our second to last throwback podcast review is Steven Spielberg’s “Lincoln,” starring Daniel Day-Lewis, Sally Field, David Strathairn, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, James Spader, Hal Holbrook & Tommy Lee Jones. Written by Tony Kushner, the film was a perfect merger of writer, actor, and director coming together to present an iconic figure in American history but finding ways to humanize him and showcase the most important period of his life rather than telling us a traditional biopic. The film received 12 Oscar nominations and won 2, including a third historic Best Actor win for Daniel Day-Lewis. How does the film hold up a decade later? Tune in as we discuss the screenplay, acting by the enormous ensemble, Spielberg’s craftsmanship, and more. Joining me for this review, I have Nicole AckmanJosh ParhamSara ClementsDan Bayer & ​Danilo Castro. You can also check out all of our previous 2012 retrospective reviews for “Zero Dark Thirty,” “Skyfall,” “Amour,” “Beasts Of The Southern Wild,” “Django Unchained,” “Silver Linings Playbook” & “Life Of Pi” if you have not done so already. Also, voting for the 2012 NBP Film Community Award winners is underway until August 13th. Thank you. We hope you enjoy it!
