Immersed in Movies: Cinematographer Janusz Kaminski Talks 'Lincoln'

The stripped-down, theatrical approach to "Lincoln" allowed Janusz Kaminski to light with an intimacy and ambiguity that's unique in his celebrated collaboration with Steven Spielberg (he's photographed every one of the director's live-action movies since "Schindler's List," for which he won his first Oscar).

Immersed in Movies: Production Designer Rick Carter Goes Inside Out with 'Lincoln'

For Rick Carter, "Lincoln" represents the culmination of a decade-long encounter with "the nature of conscience and the Goya-esque disasters of war." It's been a cathartic journey also encompassing "War of the Worlds," "Munich," "Avatar" (for which he won the Academy Award), "Sucker Punch," and "War Horse." But "Lincoln" is special.

Weekend Box Office Top Ten: 'Twilight,' 'Skyfall' and 'Lincoln' Soar

A wide variety of films succeeded this weekend, mostly well-reviewed pictures for adults-- with one franchise finale (“Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2”) and one non-holiday Disney animation hit ("Wreck-It-Ralph") delivering as expected. Business for the Top Ten was up from both last weekend (50%) and last year (12%) – even though fewer films grossed over $4 million for the three days. But last year also saw a “Twilight” opening, so the uptick is impressive.

Oscar Watch: Spielberg, Snider and Kushner Talk Finding 'Lincoln'

The thing that hits you on first viewing "Lincoln" is how unconventional it is. It's organic, grown from the seeds in Doris Kearns Goodwin's 800-page Lincoln tome "Team of Rivals," nurtured over five years by playwright Tony Kushner, and shaped by Steven Spielberg and actor Daniel Day-Lewis into something we've never seen before. This alchemy of a torrent of words, well-researched history, and the powerful personality of the world's most popular American president has yielded a magical biopic that is the current front-runner in the Oscar race.
