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. Slavery is uncomfortable cinema – it should be. Often, there is a shared naivety toward this historical backdrop.

  • 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. 12 Years a Slave has been on an awards juggernaut of late, and it will be interesting to see how it fares this weekend at the Academy Awards.

12 Years A Slave

Cinema Blend

  • Excerpt: Even a school kid studying the Civil War for the first time knows slavery is evil. And yet with a hundred years between then and now, this atrocious stain on U.S. history feels somewhat sanitized, dubbed as a kind of ancient evil from a time far away when people didn't know any better.

  • Excerpt: To hear some tell it, perhaps hyperbolically but with real conviction, 12 Years A Slave may be the definitive cinematic treatment of American slavery. Rarely, it's true, have the cruelties of the antebellum South been so thoroughly catalogued. Steve McQueen, the British video artist who made Hunger and Shame , spares his audience little.

Expert Review

FILMDUDE
30 January 2014
  • Excerpt: "12 Years a Slave" is more than just a black man sharing his first-hand account... it's a raw and visceral experience. This narrative isn't afraid to hide the senseless violence and bigotry of the time, revealing a truly horrifying portrait of humanity. It's a stark contrast to the beautiful visuals of the film, which also serve to scar in our memory with some of the more striking scenes. A story of equal intrigue and importance. Many years an injustice.

MovieZine
27 March 2015
  • Excerpt: Byggd på en sann historia om en man som föddes fri, men kidnappades för att säljas som slav, och med utsökt skådespeleri från flera håll höjer sig Steve McQueens "12 Years a Slave" en bit över andra filmer på ämnet och når upp till det allra högsta betyget.

12 years a slave (Blu-ray)

2 June 2014
  • Excerpt: Inte mycket i mänsklig historia är så skamfullt som slaveri genom tiderna; en företeelse som har existerat sedan människan insåg att man kan med våld och skrämsel få en annan att arbeta gratis i utbyte av mat, husrum och livhanken. Än idag räknar man med att det finns runt 20 miljoner människor som arbetar i slavliknande förhållanden och det är lika vidrigt som att glömma vår närhistoria och sakta försöka förvandla Europa till en högerextrem kontinent.

  • Excerpt: 12 YEARS A SLAVE is een meesterwerk: fysiek, hard en intens. De film is ook een lijdensweg. Aan de pijn en vernedering komt geen einde.
