Spielberg: the magic is gone
John Nolte says
what most of us are thinking: Spielberg's magic is gone, and he's so morally blind that even those of us who loved him, are happy to hear that:
… Spielberg may not get to make his Lincoln biopic because his moral blindness makes it impossible to understand an individual as complex and historic as Abraham Lincoln, a man willing to go so far as to destroy America in order to save it. The essence of Lincoln was that he was driven by the knowledge that without America the world was doomed, and so he would preserve it at any cost. If you can’t grasp that, you can’t grasp Lincoln, and Useful Idiots for Communist countries are immediately suspect. That “Munich” screenwriter Tony Kushner, who has made some outrageously negative statements about Israel, is credited with having written the “Lincoln” script is beyond comprehension.
Who would have ever guessed that a man -- second only to Walt Disney -- once associated with the purest joys of escapism and the pinnacle of pure filmmaking, is now associated with the very worst of modern day Hollywood. No one can take the magic out of your name. You can only give it away.
