Twitter Reactions from NYFF Screening of LINCOLN: Response Mixed but Everyone Loves Tommy Lee Jones

     October 8, 2012


Steven Spielberg’s Lincoln just premiered as the secret screening at the New York Film Festival. We gathered up a bunch of the tweeted reactions of those who saw the film: professional critics, regular folks, even a semi-coherent Whoopi Goldberg. The response was mixed, running the gamut from “the best film Roberto Rossellini never made” to “best movie ever made for A&E?”. But virtually everyone liked the acting. Daniel Day-Lewis delivered his expected great performance, but the highest acclaim was reserved for Tommy Lee Jones, whose Oscar campaign for Best Supporting Actor apparently starts tonight.

Hit the jump for the tweets. Lincoln hits limited release on November 9, and opens in wide release for the rest of us on November 16.
