The Angels’ Share (2012)


The Angels’ Share (the 2% of the whiskey yearly lost from the cask where it is stored) has a really original plot. It is a tale about young people cornered by life that struggle to find their way. This despite the harsh conditions they face and the fact that most people in their surrounding environment make it even harder. It is most of all, a decent movie.

My rating: 07/10

Lincoln (2012)

Image Linkoln will become a classic film for numerous reasons which are more or less obvious. An advantageous subject provided by the life of Abraham Linkoln, the war, the competing politics, the different characters involved etc.provides an excellent material upon to build such a movie. Steven Spielberg with  Daniel Day-Lewis, Sally Field, David Strathairn and Tommy Lee Jones provide a rewarding spectacle.

Focusing on the story told in the film, one can only admire a character like Abraham Lincoln and the efforts to pass the 13th amendment. In fact, one might wish for his country to have such leaders that look beyond their narrow political interest and struggle for the future to come.

My rating: 08/10
