Lincoln film at Wikipedia
Producer Kathleen Kennedy described Day-Lewis's performance as "remarkable" after 75% of the filming had been completed, and said, "Every day you get the chills thinking that Lincoln is sitting there right in front of you." Kennedy described Day-Lewis's method acting immersion into the role: "He is very much deeply invested and immersed throughout the day when he's in character, but he's very accessible at the end of the day, once he can step outside of it and not feel that – I mean, he's given huge scenes with massive amounts of dialogue and he needs to stay in character, it's a very, very performance-driven movie."

Has Daniel Day-Lewis Quite Literally Become the Poster Boy for 2012 Actor Transformations Without Dieting or Weighlifting?
Yahoo Voices: Has Daniel Day-Lewis Quite Literally Become the Poster Boy for 2012 Actor Transformations Without Dieting or Weighlifting?
...And yet it is a mere poster and not a full two hours or more of movie footage that is causing the most breathless anticipation of the 2013 Academy Awards. As Hurricane Isaac is tracking its way toward somewhere between Pensacola and New Orleans, no footage has yet been release of Daniel Day-Lewis in Steven Spielberg's "Lincoln." All we have is a poster and a still photographic image or two. We have no stories taking us into the middle of Day-Lewis's legendary lengths of preparation. From what can be gathered looking at that poster and those images, we are not likely to be witness to stories that are the equal of Hardy's time spent in the gym or Hathaway's long days of radish consumption. The only technique of actor reinvention that can be immediately gathered from the paltry evidence at our disposal is one that harkens back to the olden days of bodily reinvention by actors. A little bit of makeup and a hell of a lot of acting talent.

The Guardian: Hollywood won't decide the US election
Spielberg's Lincoln biopic and Kathryn Bigelow's Zero Dark Thirty may have been held back until after the votes are counted, but do US voters ever allow themselves to be swayed by what they see at the cinema?

NY Times: In The Name of the Father
Already admired as a startlingly inventive actor, Mr. Day-Lewis gives another dazzling performance in what is so far the role of his career. As played so grippingly and unpredictably, the film's Gerry Conlon is anything but a one-dimensional fall guy. "Proved Innocent" is the title of Mr. Conlon's memoir (adapted by Mr. Sheridan with Terry George), which suggests a certain lack of suspense in this story. But Mr. Day-Lewis draws endless interest out of the ways in which Gerry's character is forged right before the audience's eyes.

Quote from Butcher Bill:
Bill: Everything you see belongs to me, to one degree or another. The beggars and newsboys and quick thieves here in Paradise, the sailor dives and gin mills and blind tigers on the waterfront, the anglers and amusers, the she-hes and the Chinks. Everybody owes, everybody pays. Because that's how you stand up against the rising of the tide.From The Movie Timeline

"Daniel Day-Lewis has a unique, enormously inspiring process that is very immersive. I never heard his real voice or saw him out of costume. I met the president, I met my dad, but I never met Day-Lewis until we wrapped."The Things They Say: Joseph Gordon-Levitt on playing Abraham Lincoln's son opposite Daniel Day-Lewis in Steven Spielberg's new movie Lincoln.

IndieWire.com: First Real Look: Daniel Day Lewis In Steven Spielberg's 'Lincoln'
The film's due in November, and until recently, all we had from the project were set photos of Day-Lewis in costume. But a first official image arrived this morning, courtesy of EW, and few would deny that Day-Lewis (who's working with Spielberg for the first time), looks the part. And if we're not mistaken, the pic seems to be of President Lincoln on his fateful theater trip, in the final moments of his life.
