I watched this for history class freshman year, one of the best school experiences ever
I wish i could of meet him.. teach me how to live like a honorable men
I would love to see DDL bloopers reel someday
Yeah that would be legendary.
By the way, that was at a time when emperors, kings and princes ruled over the peoples almost everywhere here in Europe. But at least slavery was abolished almost everywhere in Europe.
Lincoln was the prototypical benevolent dictator.
Imagine him as the joker
I didn't know there were such good cameras in Lincoln's time. Thats the real Lincoln isn't it...
Once again I view this scene and I am "blown away" by its apparent profoundness (moral, political, social, artistic or otherwise) - even if it bears no resemblance to whatever was the "truth" of the matter
...his acting in this scene is pretty bad actually.
Wasn’t Lincoln famously pragmatic? He didn’t support abolishment of slavery because he wants to free the slaves, he supported it because it was popular and he sacrificed the slave owners rather than the citizens.
God grant our leaders the ability to see things Lincon's way. To forsee their impact in history with clarity.
Is that what his voice actually sounded like
It's based on historical primary source descriptions of his voice being high pitched, but of course we do not know for certain. This is a interpretation by Lewis based on limited knowledge.
I really hope another civil war won’t occur in our country with Liberals wanting to take away people’s guns
No one will want to fight in a civil war, for now.
Any time I think acting is easy, I watch a scene with good acting to remind me how unbelievably difficult it would be to pull this off. I return to this scene and from other movies like The Godfather or Good Will Hunting because they are so inexplicably haunting and satisfying.
what happend whit the light in tjis scene? it's completely unreal...we can see the spotlight
He clapped in the milkshake scene in There Will Be Blood. Here, Daniel Day Lewis shows us the sound of one hand clapping.
Anyone else mildly turned on watching this?
No, but thank you for this comment
Horeshit history. Btw, Lincoln was a lawyer for big railroad. You know, the 1% of his time, 😀
He speaks like Jordan Peterson
Republicans saved the Union.. Democrats tried to destroy it. Much like they are trying to do today. Only now Republicans are weak..all but one.
Apparently, this moment isn't good enough, for today's minorities... still crying victimhood!
What is a pettifogging Tammany Hall huckster?
3 Now’s = 3rd Oscar
i Don't know whether if it was spielberg who came up with idea for the camera angles for the thump on the table , but this surely makes the scene 10 times more effective. And you add to that the Brilliance of Lewis to it and you have probably the greatest scene you can hope to watch.
I looked up whether he actually said "clothed in immense power" and all the rest. According to reports, turns out he did.But though the intention was very, very noble, his assertions concerning his power are just plain incorrect. At least constitutionally. And most of the other presidents both before and after him, up until Franklin Roosevelt, knew this not to be true about themselves.
@FlameHAZE2010 Shouldn't matter if you have any war on your hands.
Did any of those Presidents have a Civil War on their hands?
1:11 when you get yelled at by your mom
From Lincoln to Trump in only 155 years...........how the fuck did that happen??
Yeah thanks alot abe....you free 4 million people and they aint had a job since.
“Leave the constitution alone!” Every American liked that.
1:19 Yeah, I can shake my hands like that. Even if it`s likely Lincoln snaps at his fellow constitutioners because they don`t see his point of view on how slavery can be abolished.
Chills down my spine....what a remarkable portrayal and performance by a most respected method actor in history....
For a president that obviously wouldn’t have voice recording for Day-Lewis to study he did an incredible job as Lincoln and I’m sure if you could hear the real Lincoln talk he would sound like this!
Fun fact, Lincoln thought Blacks should never be equal to Whites under the law and that they should never be able to vote or hold public office.
Yes but put it in context. For our present day it's shocking.But the society around Lincoln thought a Black man meant less than an animal.So AT THE TIME it was HIGHLY UNCOMMON.
Not only did Lincoln get assassinated, 'Lincoln' was *robbed* . It should have won Best Picture that year.
I'm offended that he said pettifogging Tammsny Hall Hucksters. I'm part of the easily offended for no reason age.
He managed to embody Lincoln so entirely-I don’t think I’ve seen anyone else show Lincoln at full boil, which on extremely rare occasions he was indeed prone to. Such a great film.
1:32 I'm stealing that phrase
Alyssa's is propaganda made by Hollywood, the war was started over tariffs, I have videos on my channel talkin about it, Lincoln was a dictator who violated the Constitution of the United States and stole the rights of the Sovereign citizens of the nation away from them and massacred innocent people all for money and power you can believe this propaganda all you want, you know that the Wizard's wand is made of Hollywood that's actually what the wands are made out of so you are literally having a spell cast in front of you by Hollywood, you get your history not from actual history but from propaganda that stuff down your throat
And ignorants call republicans nazis , that is just not logical
I WANT THE 13TH AMENDMENT PASSED AND I WANT IT PASSED NOWCALL ABRAHAM LINCOLN 8-77 CASH NOW
How come when every other nation abolished slavery it was because it was profitable politically or economically and just made sense and the leaders who enacted the policies are viewed as pragmatic and reasonable and its a minor accomplishment over their many actions (Napoleon) but with Lincoln this movie tries to depict him as a moral warrior and his vast morality and bombastic use of language makes him some kind of heroic figure. 5 IQ maybe 7 here. What about all those millions of Russian serfs that are enslaved currently in this time period? Barely anyone cared when the Czar freed them. No one really cares about their moral disparity. Probably because they killed all of their rulers. This is where Linear thinking in historical films get you though
That's the Eurovision sorted so?
This fictional president is infinitely more inspiring than the 2019 Tammany Hall Huckster in office.
@Kyle & Chung I was talking about the president represented in the movie. Hence the use of the pronoun "this".
Cyril Reyes Lincoln is a real President not a fictional president
Why is it that English actors make the best Americans?
We all owe a debt a gratitude to our 16th President. He held the Union together if he would of lost the Civil War, the US as we know it would not exist, and we would probably not be the greatest country in the world, that we are today. He was a smart man that could be ruthless when needed. Abraham Lincoln was the greatest President of our beloved country. May God have his soul in His Heavenly Glory.🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸
Lincoln, Father of the Republican party.
Seeing this movies scene after 4 years as 2019...One of great inspiration for me! Abraham lincon😘😘😘
The 1860s version of "Failure is not an option!"
Lewis sure did earn that award.
0:40 when Lincoln time travels to the 1920s and finds the KKK and segregation and many people getting killed
1. this scene is incredible. 2. Every movie I watch recently, I see so so so so so many editing issues with motion continuity. EVERY movie. At 0:40 you can clearly see a mistimed cut with DDL smacking the table. Watch his forward motion in the side angle, then him restarting the same motion in the wide. These things don't matter much if they don't take us outta the scene lol I just keep seeing them, idunno.
His nobility. And the wretch in office today without an atom of his morality. A thing to consider.
When he said "immense power, you will procure me these votes," I would have taken that to mean "absolutely anything goes here. No rules." Bribery, threats to a person's family. I would have gone all the way. Break every law necessary.
Sometimes, you got to lay down the law.
This The textbook definition of what it means to be courageous in the face of all adversity. Willing to risk it all to make a right for all time...👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻🇺🇸
I didn't know they had video cameras during Lincoln's time.
Is there anyone feel the need to strangle any Republican who tries to compare themselves to Lincoln these days?
