'Lincoln': Glory, glory, hallelujah | 4 stars

Daniel Day-Lewis is so good in "Lincoln" he makes a $5 bill look phony. He plays Honest Abe as a bemused stranger, a codger in the corner of the room, a reader, a writer, a thinker, a storyteller, a politician weighed down with the fate of an entire system of government and a father struggling with unbearable grief.
