Personal Quote:

[on Steven Spielberg] His productions have a common thematic DNA of humanity, so we are enlightened as well as entertained. His work on Lincoln (2012), alone, was worthy of enduring acclaim, for it brought to life - as no other film has - this quintessential American President, struggling with the greatest moral dilemma of our history.
