12 Years a Slave

  • Excerpt: I came into watching this film without knowing what to expect. I had heard that it was brutal and unflinching, but people say that about a lot of movies. I picked this up pretty cheap from Best Buy after waiting for the price to go down for months. First off, wow.

  • Excerpt: Mochten de Oscars voor beste film en beste regisseur straks naar het slavendrama 12 Years a Slave en Steve McQueen gaan, dan zou dat niet alleen vanwege het 'belangrijke' onderwerp zijn, of vanwege het feit dat McQueen daarmee de eerste zwarte regisseur zou zijn die die eer te beurt valt.

  • Excerpt: Ben het eigenlijk helemaal eens met de onderstaande reviews. Wat een waanzinnige, aangrijpende en mooie verfilming. De hoofdrolspeler(s) Chiwetel Ejiofor als Solomon en Lupita Nyong'o als Patsy zetten een prachtige personage neer (respect).

A Near-Perfect Movie

  • Excerpt: After "The Wolf of Wall Street," this was my favorite movie last year. Also, if you liked this, see "Hunger" and "Shame," Steve McQueen's other masterpieces. And where does this one fit? I think it's better than "Shame," but not better than "Hunger." Was it the Best Picture of 2013...?

  • Excerpt: Gravity was very entertaining movie, but the film was 99% special effects, the story line was slender and the acting passable. 12 Years A Slave is a great film with an excellent story, script and ensemble acting.

  • Summary: This film makes The Shawshank Redemption look like King Arthur. Never have I been stunned into an emotional silence after watching a film in the theater. Literally. Never. I've come out of films before thinking "My god, that was unbelievable", like when I saw the Lord of the Rings for the first...

  • Summary: This is breathtakingly well made with top notch performances up and down the cast, but without a doubt the toughest film to watch of the year. The horrific things done to these people and the way Steve McQueen unflinchingly shows them makes this a must see at least once. A

  • Summary: Incredible film. Steve McQueen displays proficiency as a filmmaker in this masterfully crafted and brutal look at slavery. Chiwetel Ejiofor gives one of the most compelling performances in cinema history, giving a multi-layered portrayal of the daily horrors suffered by his character.

  • Summary: 12 Years A Slave is a gripping engrossing film about the era of slavery in America, and how being a free man doesn't matter to slave traders and owners. Chiwetel Ejiofor deserves an Oscar nod for his stunning performance, and many other contenders are in this as well.
