How he changes his voice (TIME says it the best; while other actors can do different accents, DDL seems to have the ability to change his vocal chords) is only half of it. A performance that will be talked about for ages, and definitely among the top 3 of his career. If he gets a record third Best Actor Oscar, justice will be served.
We're just on a totally different page here, but anyway...
