12 Years a Slave

Sound & Vision Magazine
6 May 2014
  • Excerpt: While it’s a journey that covers a long period of time, featuring many complex characters and themes, its immense strength is in its harrowing but matter-of-fact documentation of the slave’s day-to-day life, seen exclusively through Solomon’s eyes.

  • Excerpt: 12 Years A Slave certainly had a good night at the Oscars this year, taking home 3 awards. It was nominated for even more. Critics seemed to adore the film as well. I can tell you that I enjoyed it more than I expected, but still don’t think its worthy of all the praise.

12 Years a Slave Blu-ray Review

DoBlu
14 March 2014
  • Excerpt: Vomit inducing cruelty is 12 Years a Slave’s hallmark, much as the same with Spielberg’s grueling Schindler’s List . The films are comparable for the repugnant obliviousness shared by their torturers, 12 Years less horrifying if only for its quantifiable body count.

12 Years A Slave

High-Def Digest
10 March 2014
  • Conclusion: Although I'm not sure that '12 Years a Slave' is really deserving of its Best Picture honor, I won't deny that it's a well-made and occasionally (although not as often as I hoped) moving examination of the horrors of slavery.

  • Conclusion: 12 Years A Slave is a triumph of filmmaking.  Even with my very minor quibbles about the film, there is no denying that this story has been very effectively brought to life in a way that makes in an important viewing experience.

12 Years a Slave (2013)

  • Conclusion: If you're like me, you'll spend most of 12 Years a Slave with an epic sized pit in your stomach. This is certainly one of the most distressing emotional experiences in recent memory, highlighted by an ironically beautiful production design and some viscerally compelling performances.

  • Summary: Much of it is difficult to watch, but “12 Years a Slave” is that rare film that’s both important in its message and a darned good film all the same.

12 Years a Slave

Slant Magazine
21 January 2014
  • Excerpt: There's a transcendent scene in 12 Years a Slave that corroborates the emotional honesty director Steve McQueen is capable of articulating when he eases up on his fine-art pretenses.
