    So much to say about this classy guy, must now surely go down alongside of Marlon Brando ? Robert De Niro ? Al Pacino et al as one of the greatest ?method? actors of all time

    Congratulations to him. However, that Lincoln movie was boring as shit though.

    Great now you know why POLITICS is banned on BHW because it is as boring as shit!

    But like you say that takes nothing away from Daniel Day-Lewis who is one of the greatest actors of all time...

    I haven't seen him in "Lincoln" yet, but Daniel Day-Lewis was
    amazing in "The Gangs of New York" and "There Will Be Blood".

    Definitely a powerful force in the acting world and surprisingly
    humble. I saw him in an interview with Steven Spielberg and
    he truly seems like a down-to-earth kind of guy.

    There will be blood and The Gangs of New York are epics. I'm a huge fan of method actors because of the finesse they bring in their acting. I mean you can just watch a movie like Raging Bull or One Flew Over the Cockoo's nest over and over again, and still praise the excellence of the actor in each scene. Daniel Day-Lewis despite giving only a few epics still comes into the league of legendary method actors.

    "There's a mystique around his craftsmanship - there are anecdotes of him being addressed as Mr President on the set of Lincoln, and he got an apprenticeship in a butchery after he was cast as a butcher in Gangs of New York.

    "But what matters is how that intensity and preparation translates onto the big screen. He is a presence that's totally cinematic and the sheer size of his character is impressive. When you think of There Will Be Blood, there was an enormous, empty landscape, but he filled it with his personality.

    "He's done something similar with Lincoln - in preparing and inhabiting it, he's not just giving a performance as president, he embodies Lincoln and puts us through the iconic quality of the role."
