The Better Angels ★★½

i'd hate to see the *worse* angels!

[hold for laughter]

i mean, there's derivative, and then there's how this simply IS a Terrence Malick movie. but oh wow i just realized how drunk i am. free wine is my favorite movie. this was a chore and a half, a potentially interesting father / son dynamic with the (obviously domineering and abusive) Abraham Lincoln father figure... not nearly as interesting as the father / son dynamic must have been behind the camera. *hiccup!*

also, Lincoln was raised by Diane Kruger and Brit Marling and then married Mary Todd? hmm.
