For many people, a Spielberg movie is not simply a movie, but an event. For many people, a Daniel-Day Lewis movie is not simply a movie, but an event. For many people, just the thought of combining those two events into a mega-event is enough to make them squeal with anticipation and joy.
And there is no doubt about it, this sure does look like a Spielberg movie. For some, that’ll make them run away screaming “melodrama” and “John Williams” and “please stop it, Steven.” For others, like me, we are susceptible to the hysteria. We get caught up in all the hooplah. There are those of us who love and embrace Spielberg for his flaws, for his sentimentality, for his sweeping scores. And hell – love him, hate him, indifferent, you’ll be there too on November 16 (or shortly after) to see this.
