  • Summary: Not saying anything different because everyone else was right. This was the best movie of 2013! To call it the "Schindler's List" or the "Hotel Rwanda" of our time is an insult. This movie is in the same league but it remains its own thing so we should not measure it by the standards of previous films-especially since one could argue it has raised the bar for such films.

  • Summary: A gripping, powerful film - deserving of the awards it has received. This it he kind of film that will open your eyes even as you want to shut them - to think this was the state of affairs a few generations removed from where we stand now. It's unflinching - scenes of rape, torture, lynching - and it's also the truth - and you will not soon forget about it.

  • Summary: I am a history nerd, and this helps brings this dark history of our country and a sad time period to light. The actors brought it to light. I like history about slavery as my grandmother's house had hiding places an was 2 blocks from a manion that was part of the under ground rail road. So I love this stuff.

  • Summary: A brutal, unflinching look at slavery that actually sticks very close to actual history, rather than adding unnecessary melodrama or purposeful historical distortions for political purposes. All technical credits are first rate, and the movie is anchored by brilliant acting across the board. A must see.

Review: 12 Years a Slave

MikePA, FilmCrave
1 January 2014
  • Excerpt: Director Steve McQueen's lofty ambitions truly shine through in this powerhouse film that tells the story of Solomon Northrup, a free black man who was abducted and sold into slavery. 12 Years a Slave takes you through Solomon's tragic and horrific journey, as you witness the cruelty and extreme inhumanity of slave owners. As a film his story is absorbing and resonating, taking you through the unfortunate circumstances and anticipations he faces.
