One one can see the return of simplicity and the search of "Four Scores and Several Years Ago" a film with historical significance.

Maybe we have entered a new era moving away from violence in films to traditional filming.

Steven Spielberg's film "Lincoln" fully depicts the passage of the 13th Amendment abolishing slavery.

A Bulgarian should look closely through analogy the Roma issue and the demeaning form Bulgarian society treats the Roma Community through the Lincoln film.

The 13th Amendment led to the First Black African American President is a monumental significance that we can learn from in a positive sense through the maturation of society.

Saw this film last night, well half of it, found it the most boring, "wordy" film I have ever seen. I can understand that Americans would vote it for Oscars (although most illuminating that Speilberg did not get a nomination) as this is great emotional chapter in their national history? but to non'Americans all that comes across is a group of gas bags spending the whole time talking in rooms and council chambers. No action, no scenery, even (in the 11/2 hours I viewed) Lincoln did not make one captivating/emotional speech. I did something I have seldom done before, got up and left way before the end.

Happy New Year (old Russia tradition)! and..."the maturation of society"---ну вот ёб твою мать!, sorry.....that "maturation of society"
is-First and Foremost- the Non-Interference into the home affairs of other peoples and states (and skin colour or any person' race is of a smallest significance here). What on earth is not clear!? Ну вот тяжело спорить с "искренними" идиотами [~It's impossible to open
