I will be pretty surprised if there is a better performance this year than Daniel Day-Lewis in this. Just an amazing job on every level. Totally transformed. The rest of the cast is equally as great, David Strathairn, Tommy Lee Jones, Sally Field, James Spader all turn in great awards worthy performances.
